I am growing a colored Romain lettuce for the first time in my garden and I wondered when to harvest it.  Do I wait until it forms a bunch or can I use the outer leaves now?

leave bottom leaves --helps keep out dirt then harvest upper clumps of leaves
That lettuce forms up.....you can cut it leaving part of the stem as it will get more leaves....or you can just take some leaves....that is what we are doing now. home grown is much sweeter than store bought because of the chemicals that they use in growing them.  We don't use anything but fertilizer & lime and mulch, leaves and grass sometimes hay when we prepare the soil.
