Flashy Butter Oak (OG)

Lactuca sativa
HOW TO GROW LETTUCE

Start indoors 4-5 weeks before last frost, plant out 4 weeks before frost. For fall harvest, transplant 8–10 weeks before first frost. Direct seed after last frost 1” apart, thin. Plant every 2–3 weeks to ensure continuous crop. Avoid sowing one long row all at once. Choose bolt-resistant varieties for summer harvest. Lettuce seed can enter thermal dormancy at high temperatures, see optimum germination temps. For continuous winter cold frame harvest from Elliot Coleman’s book ‘The New Organic Grower’: September 1 to 10, sow every 3-1/2 days. September 10 to 18, every 2 days, September 18 to October 10, every 3-1/2 days, October 10 to November 15, every 7 days. November 15 to December 15, every 10 days. Soil pH 6.0-6.8. Hardiness zones 6-9.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 22,400 seeds per ounce. Average 131M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 80%. Usual seed life: 3 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 25 feet.

Wild Garden Seed Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth Seed grower since 1994
Karen and I began Wild Garden Seed in 1994 at the same kitchen table where her laptop is sitting now. The seed business was an adjunct to our Wild Garden Salad business until September of 2001, when we left salad selling behind and rededicated all of our energies to making a livelihood as seed growers, breeders, and sellers. There were some very tough years there. In 2002 we began a joint venture with our friends John Eveland and Sally Brewer, owners of Gathering Together Farm, to grow and sell organic seed under the Wild Garden name. Gathering Together Farm provided the infrastructure, means of production, and home office services, Shoulder to Shoulder Farm provided the seed management, processing, research, and marketing. We shared many complimentary farm functions over the years: the insectary benefits of diverse flowers in a long period of blooming, the harvest synergies of biennial crop production together, peaks and ebbs in farming cash flow, and seasonally opportune infrastructure sharing. All of these made the farm function better and helped lift Wild Garden Seed into a self-sustaining, farm-based seed enterprise with an international reach. We sold seed to 41 countries in 2014, our 20th anniversary.
