Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Want curly lettuce or endive that's tender and not bitter? Blanch them by keeping the sun from their leaves right before harvest. Cover them with a flower pot, a bucket or a plate 7 to 10 days before harvesting. Be sure that if you have a lot of rain, stop blanching or your plants will rot.
