Lettuce Care

Anonymous added on June 13, 2011 | Answered

We planted Romaine lettuce and have been enjoying salads for the past few months. We left on vacation and when we came back, our lettuce was about 24 inches high. How do I tend these large stocks?

Large, overly ripened leaves are not really usable because they get tough and bitter. However, you may be able to simply pick off as much of the larger leaves as possible to make way for new growth. Feed the overgrown leaves to wildlife critters or add them to the compost pile.
