Description

KENTUCKY LIMESTONE BIBB LETTUCE is an heirloom type of loose leaf lettuce first cultivated by Jack Bibb in the late 19th Century, and named "Limestone" for the wonderful sweet soil composition in his native Kentucky. Delicate "melt-in-your-mouth" flavor that puts it ahead of butterheads in that respect. I love it! But it is cool weather only - bolts at heat - which makes it a good candidate for your indoor growing system, but explains why it is rarely seen at the green grocers. So it is a quick short season lettuce for early Spring or Fall growing. You can sweeten your soil with horticultural lime to approximate its original growing conditions. 46-50 days. 100 seeds.

GROWING TIPS: Lettuces are my absolute favorite - I dedicate a lot of space to them in my garden because I like variety and they can be really beautiful kissed by the sun. Direct sow in early spring and late summer. The more space each lettuce has to grow the larger it becomes. If you are sowing for quick greens, don't bother to thin - just use your scissors to clips what you need for dinner as it will continue to grow. Lettuces love cool (not cold) weather and respond to well-prepared soil and regular weeding and watering. Relatively pest-free, with the exception of slugs (easily combatted with a barrier of ashes or copper wire) and furry invaders (chicken wire cloches work best there).
