Salad days

Home grown salad freshly picked just before it's eaten is a treat and a reminder that real lettuce really does have flavour!

This is the patch of Black Seeded Samara Lettuce in the vegetable garden. The seed was from the Heritage Seed Library and is a variety known to tolerate drought - Apart from when it was first planted out the plants haven't needed watering, the vivid green leaves have a pleasing texture and taste ..... well, lettucy.
