Cut-and-Come-Again Lettuces

cayjohan | Jun 10, 2009 05:20 AM

Too impatient to wait for the seeds to grow, I did buy one "cheater" pot of ready-to-go mixed lettuces and herbs. I have fearlessly Cut. Now I'm wondering about the Come-Again portion of our program.

I cut the lettuces down to about two inches as instructed. Now: do I fertilize to get another decent crop? Just wait it out? Do the herbs in mixed pots like this compete too much with the lettuces for another flush of leaves? My lettuce gardening past involved many rows of lettuces with no need for the cut-and-come-again method, so I'm in the dark.

The other pots of lettuce I've sown are not quite ready to use, so I'm reduced to staring at the mixed pot hoping stern looks will do the trick! Anything additional I should be doing?
