Here is a photo of several different kinds of lettuce, all nestled together. I challenge anyone to find such a variety and quality in their local U.S. grocery store.
And yes, I do indeed murmur sweet nothings to them in the dark of the moon, a'la Anastasia.
When it comes time for my salad, three or four different kinds of lettuce are harvested, trimmed, washed off and given a light, home-made dressing. Yummy yummy! Good for my tummy.
And remember, this is only the "lechuga" (lettuce). Can you imagine what the rest of the garden looks like? Even better, why not put a "Jardin" in yourself. You'll love the lettuce!
