I love lettuce!

Yesterday we went to the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) in Hamilton, Ontario. I really liked the lettuce in their Veggie Village display! My favourites were Bronze Beauty, which is a leaf lettuce that looks almost like a green oak leaf, and Garnet Rose, which is a romaine lettuce.

I learned that a romaine lettuce can also be called a cos lettuce, and the more space you give a lettuce, the bigger it will grow.

I just planted some more lettuce seed in pots so that we have more to put in our garden this summer. I am going to get some of the Bronze Beauty and Garnet Rose for next year.

I hope I remember to space them out! My goal is to grow them as big as the ones at RBG.
