If you want to grow fresh lettuce find a space, it is easy and very cheap. A packet of seeds costs less than 50 euro cents and there are 1500 + seeds in a package. You can plant a few seeds each week that will produce fresh lettuce from spring to autumn.
Lettuce does not like full sun all day, it prefers part shade. You can take some leaves from each plant as it grows, or wait until it has reached maturity and take the whole plant. If you wait too long it will “Bolt” and produce seed and it will taste bitter.
Find a space in a simple pot or plant bed, or you can even plant vertically in a garden wall planter (more about making a garden wall planter in another post with details soon.)
