I really want to grow some type of salad lettuce like this, but I hear that there are lots of pests who like to prey on lettuce and such. Is this true? Once I had lettuce in a salad from someone’s garden, and ate a snail that was on the lettuce by mistake!! I’m scarred for life! lol
Your lettuce looks beautiful though, I’m inspired to maybe try again in the backyard garden this summer.
A new, accidental, I should add, reader here. I’ve just been told a story by a frien of your guerilla gardening speech in a garden club, the name of which I can’t remember, but the synchronicities that led me to getting to your blog are just too much to explain rationally. Just wanted to say that I had picked up a copy of the Edible Vancouver before I heard about the phenomenon or the Heavy Petal, and I read your salad article, unsolicited, this afternoon, driving to the White Rock beach. Then my friend phoned and told me about the speech. I checked you out, found your blog, learned you’re the author, instantly loved the message… and the concpept. I’ll be around a lot now, hope you don’t mind.
I am drooling over your beautiful spring lettuce! Nice growing!!
