Lotsa Lettuce

This frilly green looseleaf lettuce is a local variety that many people in town have self seeding in their gardens. There are usually a few good examples of it entered in the vegetables section of our town show, often with first and/or second prize cards in front of them. I’ve currently got one or two hundred of them scattered throughout the garden. They’re very tasty, are a more useful space filler than the weeds that would otherwise have grown in their place, and the excess get fed to our bunnies or a friend’s goats when they shoot to seed.
The daffodils in the middle of the bed were an edging last year. I’ve expanded this bed since then. When they start to yellow off I’ll dig them up and put them somewhere else.
