Lettuce

Plant closer together (6 inches) for smaller heads or roughly (12 inches) for larger heads.  You can harvest the outer leaves first and let the inner ones grow or cut the whole head when it gets to size.  It will become more bitter the longer it stays in the field.  Also you can continue to plant for a continuous supply as the lettuce will eventually go to seed.

All save icebergs tolerate heavy frost. Grow best in cool weather with ample moisture, many kinds suffer bottom rot and tipburn in heat; select summer varieties carefully. Use shade cloth to keep summer lettuce tender and sweet longer.
