A Plug for an ‘Efficient’ Lettuce

My inefficient lettuce

Oh, no, another painful morning during which I’ve learned that the lettuce I’ve been growing is “inefficient.”  Seems there is lettuce and then there is “ultimate efficiency” lettuce.

That’s the view of Barbara Damrosch, “A Cook’s Garden” columnist in the Washington Post. In her recent article “The curly-headed French superstar,” she explains why she prefers lettuce that has leaves joining at their base, rather than around a central core.

And while she’s at it, she opines why lettuce turns brown when you cut or rip it. On that point she expects an “outcry.”
