Lettuce

I remember my first head of Yuma lettuce....fresh from the field...It was Romaine...and it was yummy. Lettuce is lettuce...but that lettuce was VERY GOOD!

The last two times we have been in Yuma and we pass a lettuce field... I wish I could just go and pick myself a head...

On one of our walks...we walk past a lettuce field... every time I see the lettuce...I crave it!

Then one day....the pickers were picking!!


I begged hubby....to ask if we could buy a fresh bunch of lettuce...
I watched from the distance...and got worried....
Hubby stopped him cutting us some...after 4 bunches...
It is delicious!!
(I didn't keep it all for ourselves... I did share with the neighbours!)

But guess what's for dinner....
And for lunch!

  1. You can't beat it when it is really fresh like that. And an added bonus is that it is good for you as well :))

  5. Oh my goodness! Now I'm craving a truly fresh salad too! My Dad gardens, but he doesn't grow lettuce, so I have to find it at the farmers market. YUM! Thanks for the craving!
