Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Black Seeded Simpson Planting Instructions:
Black Seeded Simpson grows best in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. You can direct sow in early spring, but it may be fall planted as well. Sow seeds ¼” deep, 1” apart in rows 12-18” apart. When plants have two or three true leaves, thin to 8” spacing. Keep well-watered during dry periods. Lettuce is shallow-rooted, so avoid disturbing the soil around the plants when weeding. Unless there is regular rainfall, lettuce plants must be watered deeply at least once a week and more frequently during periods of drought. Mulch with a layer of compost or clean straw to help the soil retain moisture.

Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Black Seeded Simpson Harvesting Instructions:
For best quality, pick lettuce early rather than late as lettuce allowed to grow too long becomes bitter and tough. Try to harvest in the morning or evening when the leaves are crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Store for 5 to 7 days in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.

Thriving like a champ February 23, 2017
Reviewer: Matthew Tuescher from Nowhere, WI  
I couldn't believe how fast these sprouted up.  Within 2 days I had sprouts.  Now they just keep going.  Very green and strong.  I should mention this is my first time gardening and I am doing it in an indoor greenhouse. Before this I had zero experience gardening.

Reviewer: Jocelyn James from Ocala, FL United States  
Seeds are always fresh and have a high germination rate. Even the second year. You cant beat the price and they come in easy resealable foil packets. This is my second time ordering seed from MPS and both times I have been impressed with them.
