Next step on the jacket - plus amazing lettuce
The lettuce is in our garden and has been in all winter, believe it or not. The snow and cold didn't affect it at all! We are constantly amazed by this variety - it doesn't bolt in the heat of the summer and provides us with fresh leaf lettuce right through until late fall by simply cutting it off and letting it re-grow from the roots. If you're interested, it's called 'Simpson Elite'. I'm looking forward to my first sandwich of this lettuce, peanut butter and mayo (and don't say euwwww til you've tried it!).
