Hello ladies!  I need help with my lettuce - I never grew it before & I have no idea when to pull it!  I've heard not to let it go too long or to seed.... but when?  How big is it supposed to get?  I have red iceberg & should've posted pics but I'm at work - I'll try adding them tonight...  Thx for any help...

I am not growing iceberg but I would pick it when it got to be about the size they are in the store.  I am growing romaine and you can just pull the outer bigger leaves and the plant will keep growing.  Good Luck.

 this is iceberg but i think it's leaf lettuce?  not head lettuce? it's not looking like a head of iceberg in the market... so I'm gonna try just pulling leaves off & see...

thx
