Lettuce and Spinach - More on How to cut it from the plant

In my backyard garden, you'll find three kinds of lettuce and a whole bunch of spinach growing in 2 plots. Take your scissors and cut toward the bottom of the leaves. Don't pull the roots out since the plants will continue to grow for about another month. On the larger leafy lettuce plants, make sure you cut only the outside, underneath, larger leaves since the lettuce grows from the inside center. There are plenty of those to choose from.
