Metta Lettuce Mix

$3.90

A mix of colors & textures for baby leaf lettuce. Enjoy all season long. In the Palli language of ancient Buddhism, “úMettain is the word for loving kindness , the attribute of benevolence and good will felt toward others. In our neck of the woods, “úMettain evokes the name of our road & the nearby hamlet: Mettacahonts, a word likely of Mahican origin that means tree shaded creek. So, this lovely lettuce mix was named Metta to express Hudson Valley Seed’s love for it, to embody the good will of sharing seeds, and to help their customers feel connected to their little seed farm in their beautiful corner of the world. Certified organic. Non-GMO, open pollinated seeds. Seed count: 250. Artwork by: Daryl Storrs
Growing: Sow indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning about 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring & summer showings promptly to beat bolting. Succession sow 2-3 weeks apart until about 2 weeks before the first fall frost. Cut each seeding 2-3 times before moving on to the next. You can also thin and allow plants to produce mature heads. Lettuce likes steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best tasting leaves.
