Year Round Lettuce

I’ve now completed 12 monthly posts about suitable lettuce varieties and growing techniques. You can see these by clicking the Lettuce Varieties Category tab, but you can also get the overview here. They run from May to April because that’s how I wrote them. Click the name of the month to view the original post.

  1. I’m trying to grow lettuce year round in zone 8. I’m harvesting Kalura in May -June and hope to harvest Jericho the rest of the summer. Fall and winter lettuce growth outside is easy. Arugula is easy to grow yer round down in Savannah.

  2. I really like Kalura and Jericho. Do try the Batavians too. Cherokee is my favorite – beautiful color!
    I remember being surprised to hear from a grower in Atlanta, Georgia that he grew arugula all summer in his hoophouse. Now I’m just back from Jamaica and learned that arugula does well for them too. And they have kale growing all year. I’m redeveloping my theories about brassicas bolting. Perhaps they really need a cold spell to initiate flowering. Given constant hot weather (and enough water!) more seems possible than I had realized.
