Every February, I buy packets of lettuce seed
My favorite is black seeded simpson
A leaf lettuce
And I sow them into the summer flower pots
To be harvest for late April and May dinners
The lettuces make the pots look a lot better than just plain brown dirt!
And we get a bonus of fresh lettuce!
Made into a wilted lettuce salad
Lettuce, radishes and green onion and chopped bacon
And a hot dressing of bacon drippings, sugar and vinegar and water
Poured over the lettuce while hot so that the lettuce "wilts" a bit!
It is one of my favorite spring dishes!
I love this wilted lettuce salad that my mother used to make often. So delicious!
That looks soooooo good!!
I didn't try any lettuces this year, but will definitely try them in pots next year!!!
A few years back, I put them in the Herb Garden. . .and Pee Wee enjoyed the lettuces for us!!!
My MoMa made wilted lettuce and to this day, it is one of my favorite Spring dishes!!!
