Growing: Sow indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning bout 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring and summer showings promptly to beat bolting. Continue sowing until about 2 weeks before first fall frost. Lettuce lies steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best tasting leaves. Harvest at baby stage when leaves are 3in high, or at maturity. Merlot is an open lettuce, harvest mature heads when full and frilly.
