Let's Get Dirty | All Blogs

It’s a bird! It’s fish! It’s flashy trout’s back!

By Penny Stine

We were gone for a couple of days and my garden exploded with weeds. My flashy trout's back lettuce looks pretty happy, too. 

So far, it's not bitter (like every other lettuce I've tried to grow). I plan on making some sort of main dish salad with it tomorrow or Friday. I like the speckled look of it, but have no idea if it adds to the nutrional value of it or not.
