Lessons learned in gardening: boston lettuce

I planted quite a few seeds for the lettuce, mid-summer. Only one took root and at one time, this was actually a perfect head of lettuce but I felt a bit flummoxed about taking the whole thing out of the ground so I let it continue growing… into a tree. Great thing about lettuce trees if if you’re like me and generally only use boston lettuce in your sandwich fixings, you can just pluck one leaf off the tree and you’re good to go. No salad spinner needed.
