How do you pick romaine lettuce so it keeps growing?
How do you harvest romaine lettuce without killing the plant?
To harvest head lettuce without killing the plant, use a sterilized gardening knife or shears. Cut the plant at the base of its stem, and make sure you cut the leaf a minimum of one inch above the soil, without damaging the roots. Keep watering the stem, and in another 50-60 days, you should have another lettuce.
When should I harvest romaine?
Romaine lettuce is generally ready to harvest at 70 to 75 days after planting. Excited home gardeners don't have to wait that long, however, to sample the fruits of their labor.

Should I let my lettuce go to seed?
When lettuce goes to seed, it will drop to the ground and spring up when your stalks are dying back. If you let your spring greens go to seed, your fall garden will come to life right on time. Since lettuces are light feeders, I'll allow them to re-seed in the same spot once.
