black seeded simpson

lettuce simpson
Its a good year for lettuce. This is black seeded simpson that I grew from a free trial package of seeds from Sand Hill Preservation Center. Its an heirloom lettuce that grows very fast. We have been eating little seedlings that I thin out for a week now. After I thin it a bit more, its recomended to harvest it by scissoring at the base and then letting the leaves grow back.

Lactuca sativa

Are you suppose to thin lettuce into little groups or something?
