A Plug for 'Efficient' Lettuce

Is my lettuce 'efficient'?

Oh, no, another painful morning during which I’ve learned the lettuce I've been growing is "inefficient."  It seems there is lettuce and then there is “ultimate efficiency” lettuce.

That’s the view of Barbara Damrosch, “A Cook’s Garden” columnist in the Washington Post. In her recent article, “The curly-headed French superstar,” she explains why she prefers "ultimate efficiency" lettuce that has leaves joining at their base rather than around a central core.

And while she’s at it, she opines why lettuce turns brown when you cut or rip it. On that point she expects an “outcry.”
