Growing Lettuce FOR SUCCESSION

...Cut and Come Again
Last year, I learned of a new technique, called Cut and Come Again for growing lettuces and other greens.

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.

Cut and come....! Sounds cool... !

Does this technique apply only on greens or it can be applied on other plants as well?

Greens are something that can handle Cut and Come Again.
Many flowers, (Dead heading is taking the dying flower off so more blossoms can come again) Some fruits, too. but most plants cannot.
