So, I bought some lettuce this morning:
Starting from the left, we have radicchio, chicory, and the sad looking plant on the right? That’s arugula. All will (hopefully) grow on my balcony over the summer, and provide some zest to a boring leaf lettuce salad.
You can’t get much more local than that (is the soil local? No. Probably not. And yes. I’m lazy, and didn’t start them from seed – I didn’t want to push my luck)
