2. Multiple Harvests
Don’t think that you can only harvest each plant once. If you do it right, you can get several harvests out of one plant. You want to harvest the leaves when they are ready but leave enough on the plant to protect it and encourage new growth.
New leaves will appear, and you can harvest them too. Instead of just taking off all the leaves at once, enjoy your lettuce longer and get more out of it. As long as you continue to care for the base plant, you can get several harvests from it. Just make sure you are giving the leaves a chance to grow back before you harvest the next set of leaves.
This is a great way to make your lettuce go further and get the most for your money. It also reduces waste and allows you to produce healthier and heartier plants each time you harvest them.
