After writing up my last post, Little, I decided to share these pictures of humongous heads of lettuce. I got them today from My Organic Market (seriously the best little store ever) and the bagger and cashier were stunned when they realized that my produce bags each contained only one head of lettuce. (They even commented that I was buying special “magic” lettuce) I agreed because I’ve never seen a head of lettuce get this big before- not even on my Godfather’s farm where I worked when I was a teenager. M and I are salad lovers but this is a lot of lettuce! We may not finish it before it kicks the bucket. Did I mention that they were only $1.79 each? Am I the only one who gets this giddy about cheap, organic, locally grown produce?
Keep in mind the wooden bowl the lettuce is displayed in is 16″ by 10″.
