organic fava bean seedsOrganic Sandy Lettuce

30-50 days

1/2 gram

Sandy is a beautiful bright green oakleaf type with dense heads measuring 10 to 12 inches high and wide. Sufficiently compact for container gardening, Sandy can be picked 30 days from direct-sowing for baby greens or in 50 days for a mature looseleaf head. Very slow to bolt, remains sweet and crisp even through the summer heat. Sandy is very resistant to powdery mildew, downy mildew and tip burn. 2015 AAS Winner, Sandy is the first lettuce to earn this distinction since 1985.

Planting Tips for Organic Heirloom Lettuce Seeds:

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.
