Growing recommendations

Lettuce can be direct seeded or transplanted in successions early in the spring until late summer. Sow seeds and barely cover with soil (1/4”) – seeds need light to germinate but the germinated seeds will die if allowed to dry out. Space or thin head lettuce to 12”. Lettuce for mixed greens can be seeded more densely, ideally in rows for ease of harvest.

We're trialing and breeding new varieties!

This is the most challenging and thrilling part of our work.

The trialing allows us to test varieties of a same species side by side and determine which one(s) taste and perform the best.

 

Breeding and variety maintenance means selecting for traits that are desirable such as flavor, texture, disease resitance, earliness and hardiness, just to mention a few.
