As you may have heard, we had an extraordinarily wet winter. In addition to the lovely new creeks on the property, the garden is offering a robust lettuce crop to enjoy. Over four pounds were harvested just today! I don't know the names of the varieties, but I call them Speckled Beauty, Slender Leaves, Curly Delight, and Butter Leaf (okay, I know that one). If you attend a retreat this spring, you're likely to be a very happy recipient of this generous yield.
Here is a scrumptious salad no matter what kind of lettuce you use!
