It’s a little funny how anal-retentive I get about lettuce from the garden. I’d rather eat spinach in general, but taking out heads of lettuce is more painful for me than harvesting spinach. That empty spot, I suppose. I know I could grow leaf lettuce (and I do). It’s just harder to totally remove a plant from the garden.
There comes a point when I realize that we’ll never be able to eat all that lettuce if I don’t start pulling.
That’s what I did yesterday. One of the big heads of Cos that grew in last year’s compost area, a couple of small Bibb heads and some red leaf lettuce.
Ahh. It’s not winter.
