Before I started collecting seeds from my produce, I always thought that it was a complicated process. However, the urge to save money forced me to give it a try anyway. Fast forward to these day I now store tomato seeds and even set up a diy seed vault. So how about we learn how to collect and store lettuce seeds.

As I have already mentioned, there is really not much to this than just allowing your lettuce to grow in your garden. The great part is that you still get to enjoy your lettuce too, actually you may end up eating more of it than you normally would. Seeds are available from most varieties, even your favorite ones.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • lettuce
  • bucket
  • brown bag
  • empty seed packets

If we are going to be collecting seeds from the lettuce, then the first step is to get some growing in your garden first, right? Wait for your lettuce to grow and enjoy as much as you can through out the season. In order to get seeds you have to leave the plants to flower, which is also known as bolting. One plant will get you plenty of seeds, you’ll only need to leave one or two plants to bolt.

I usually just leave one, as they don’t look pretty at all when they flower. The seeds are ready for harvesting when the flower head dries out and there are puffs of cotton coming out the top. Simply pinch the heads off, and throw them into a bucket or brown bag. I just use my hands to break the heads apart and store them in empty packets.
