We have been getting snow here in California for years, so the weather has been getting colder here. This is a prime opportunity to start planting some of the cool season produce that we were growing in our California garden.
California has a warm, wet climate, which means that it is a prime opportunity to grow a lot of cool season produce. Not just for those of you from the south, but for those of you from the south who want to grow a little bit of winter.
There are many cool season crops that grow easily in California. I am one of those people. One of the most popular is lettuce, which can be easily grown from seed (as long as you have a greenhouse) and doesn’t require much space. And because it is easy to grow, it is also cheap. It will last a long time since it is not a long growing season and does not require irrigation. I have also noticed that it also has more nutrients since it is so easily grown.
The lettuce is called a “winter lettuce,” because it is not typically planted during the spring months, but rather in the fall. It can actually be eaten, or you can just throw it in a salad.
I’ve tried growing winter lettuces in my greenhouse a few times, but it was always a hassle. The leaves were too long and they were not very productive because they were not growing on the stems. It did not take a lot of time, but I needed a lot of hand labor to cut them off. The lettuce also needs to be kept watered, but not to much, otherwise the leaves will turn brown and die, but the plants will still grow.
I’m not sure I’m convinced that winter lettuce can be eaten as it’s hard to pull off a good salad without getting nasty, but if you want to, then I guess you can. I will say that the leaves are very tasty, and you could probably get a good supply of lettuce from them.
winter garden lettuce is a great source of vitamin C. One study at the University of Michigan found that if you eat winter lettuce regularly, you can lower your risk of heart disease by over 50%. Another study found that eating more lettuce can cut your risk of cancer by 25%.
The thing I love most about winter garden lettuce is that it is very acidic and doesn’t taste like anything else I’ve ever eaten. At least if we’re talking about the salad part, it’s a lot easier to eat than lettuce. There’s a lot of leafy stuff and it isn’t as sweet as lettuce.
I am not at all suggesting that you go out and buy a bunch of lettuce and eat it every day. In fact the opposite is true. If you don’t like lettuce you can always try eating a bunch of frozen spinach. I’m not saying that you should stay away from lettuce altogether, but I think you should know what you are eating.
I was thinking the same thing about lettuce. If you want good salad, make sure you buy good lettuce. It’s not all that hard and you can do it from home if you need to.
