Speckled lettuce

One of the best reasons to shop at farmers markets is to find new or different vegetables. Last year, I fell in love with the speckled lettuce at the UBC farmers market and so this year I decided to grow my own.

Here, in addition to romaine, I planted red sails, rouge d’hiver, speckled butterhead and freckles. Right now, the lettuce has finally reached the sustainability phase, and I am able to  harvest a large salad every second day.  I started a row of mixed greens last week in one of the other boxes, so hopefully we will soon be adding that to our salads as well.

Here is the view of the garden in the early morning when I water:
