Leaf lettuce

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have abunch of leaf lettuce that is going to go to waste with the cold weather coming.

 

 

Can I vac seal it and either put it in the fridge or freeze it?

 

Dont know if anyone has ever done this.

I'm going to give you a bump here. But I really think your going to loose crop of lettuce. After freezing it will be nothing but a mushy mass of ................yuk. But that is my opinion.

Adam I know of no known way to keep lettuce. I'd say feed it to your cows!

Try putting it in (roots on) in a tub with water. Think Hydroponics. I know if you put celery in a cup of water it will keep fresh for a long time. You can grow lettuce from the butt ends if you put them in water. I have done that with romaine.

I also thought of digging it up and planting it in a tub to go inside.

 

I have a 10ft row of it.

That's probably your best bet. If you have good temp inside and enough light you could have lettuce all year.

I keep lettuce in a vac container in the fridge.  It stays fresh for 4 to 5 weeks that way.

Every year my mother grows lettuce, a LOT of lettuce…… She just likes to see stuff grow…….All of a sudden, I will find a HUGE zipper bag in the frig filled with lettuce…. She will wrap it in a wet paper towel…… I’m the only one that will eat it, so it’s not something I can eat all at once, but it will last for several weeks like that for me……BTW the hydroponics works also…. I have a buddy that has a 4’ x 8’ shelf set-up with PVC piping to grow lettuce. He is picking enough for a salad for his family at least 2-3 times a week…….  SB
