Your lettuce is ready to be harvest once the leaves are around 4 inches tall. You can harvest one leaf at a time or a whole bunch. Our favorite tool to use for harvesting our our 'snips' which you can find on our website under the "Market" tab.
Be sure not to cut too close to the crown of the plant. It is best to leave at least 1 inch of space above the crown to ensure your plant stays healthy and continues to produce. For the best quality lettuce, harvest in the morning when the cells are the most hydrated. The average salad lover will go through 2 feet of lettuce a week so make sure you plant enough!
