Oakleaf (45 days)

Oakleaf lettuce was introduced in the 1770s and was known at that time as "American Oak Leaved". 

Just like the name implies Oakleaf has deeply lobed leaves that form a tight cluster.  The unique shape really adds to salads. 

Flavor is not sacrificed when the summer heat begins as Oakleaf does not turn bitter like other lettuces.  Oakleaf is also slow to bolt. Perfect for that whiskey barrel container on the back porch where lettuces are easy access for quick salads.

Lettuce is among the 12 foods on which pesticide residues have been most frequently found. In 1990, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found detectable pesticide residues in 55 percent of domestically produced lettuce samples.  Can you imagine what the levels are today! To avoid such poisons grow your own lettuce and be sure you are getting wholesome, organic and nutritious food for your family.

Planting Tips:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow every 2-3 weeks a new crop if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.

Seeding Rate:

30,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 oz.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
