Garden At Home, Lettuce, Arugula, Spinash Cut and Harvest Plan
Growing Lettuce FOR SUCCESSION
...Cut and Come Again
Essentially, it is how to plant some greens, harvest them PARTIALLY, keep the greens growing and keep harvesting as well. What I do is, plant lettuce, in long rows. when it is mature enough, cut from one side, NOT ALL the lettuces, but only cut down and leave about an inch of greens growing. This allows the inch remaining to regrown, and saves time before you harvest again. in theory, you are cutting for harvest, while leaving enough still growing that the plant has time to recover before the next harvest. The key for me, is to always have more growing, so that I can be assured I can harvest for my family and still grow more without depleting the growing plants.
Note above, I ahve some planters that appear to be empty. in reality, I have seeded more lettuce, so that as this greens are harvested, even with Cut and Come Again, there will always be more ready to harvest.
