Lactuca Sativa

One of the greatest things to grow in the home garden is lettuce.  There is simply no way to match the amazing variety and texture that you get from home grown lettuce.  Simply great.

You may not realize that lettuce is descendant of dandelions or at least run very close in the same family.  Well, I just ran across a couple of "volunteer" lettuce plants (seemingly of the delicious "Blushed Butter Oak" variety that sprang up in the sideyard next to a dandelion just to make the comparison clear.“Wild” lettuce

I will let them grow up a bit, and them clip them for the salad bowl
