Lettuce and other salad greens are easy to grow and thrive in the cool temperatures of fall. They can be ready to harvest in as little as 30 days from sowing, making them one of the quickest vegetables you can grow. What’s more, lettuce and many of the greens popular in salad mixes flourish when grown in containers, so you can easily grow your own salad even if you do not have a vegetable garden!
Young lettuce plants are readily available from local garden centers and farmers markets. Or you can grow your own from seed. Either way, lettuce planted now will provide you with fresh tasty greens from fall until hard frost.
