Marty:  I don't have any direct experience with this, but it makes sense to me to put the lettuce in the shadier part of the field and collards next because it's about the leaves and not the "fruit"-- like it is for broccoli and cabbage.  Hope it works out.

Our garden has a row of trees to the west. Our beds run parallel to the trees. We are planting lettuce closest to the trees, then collards then cabbage then broccoli assuming that the amount of light they get in this order matches each plant’s need best. Is this true? I’m hoping for knowledge coming from science or experience.
