How to Kill Lettuce In a Good Way

How to Kill Lettuce In a Good Way

by Nicole Burke of Gardenary

One of the best things about growing your own salad garden is that it just doesn’t stop.

Nearly all lettuces can be harvested as ‘cut and come again’ varieties. Meaning: You can cut them and they’ll keep producing more and more leaves for you to keep cutting.

It’s a very good thing.

But sometimes when the lettuce plants are thriving in early spring and fall, the raw salad just might get a tiny bit repetitive (just a tiny bit because this is just harvested lettuce we’re talking about).

One great alternative to the traditional raw salad is to cook it…or rather, kill it.

While I’m no cook, I can definitely follow a good recipe and Ali Slagle’s on Food 52 is pretty dang delicious.

So, after you’ve kept your salad plants alive and the harvests just won’t stop, do a crazy thing and kill it.

And if you’re accidentally killing lettuce in a bad way (i.e. it’s dead in the garden), you’ve got to watch my Salad School workshop. I’ll help you be sure you’ve got the 4 most important things to ensure your Salad Garden success and also give you a chance to learn more about my online course-Salad School.

Here’s to keeping lettuce alive in the garden and then killing it in the very best way (and enjoying every single bite).
