I live on east coast and wondered whether it is a good idea to plant lettuce seeds and what type for summer 2020/2021?

The open leaf varieties. Cos, butter crunch, oak leaf etc. Lettuce seedlings take a lot of care to grow. Seeds need to to be very close to the surface to germinate, only a couple of mm of fine potting mix or seed raising mixture to cover them. Water with a sprayer or mister not with a hose. Water 2-3 times a day, keep the soil moist. Will need to grow them for 3-4 weeks before transplanting them.
