lettuce and endives
I was surprised to find my little lettuce patch still growing. I don't go out to the garden very often these days. I had stopped covering the patch in early December because everything was freezing pretty solid, even with the covering. I didn't realize that these plants would survive. Not really very many plants - probably not enough for a single salad serving - but I think they are photogenic and a good crop to consider expanding for next year. Still growing are (clockwise from top left): purple-spotted escarole, curly endive, oak leaf lettuce and plain escarole.
