Little Leprechaun – a bloody great lettuce
May 21, 2010 § Leave a comment
Little Leprechaun is one of those reliable culivars that always grows well in the field and tastes fabulous on the plate. Hardy, vigorous, attractive, and to top it all Little Leprechaun grows tall, taking up very little groundspace.
I’m harvesting it now for a BBQ, but also the weather is really hotting up. It was planted in shade to mitigate the onset of long summer days. This along with plenty of moisture has prevented any lettuces in the Groblog’s garden from bolting.
And we are done with lettuces til autumn!
Growing inbetween the shorter Bianca Riccia da Taglio endive and bulbing fennel.
Cut, photographed and on its way to the salad bowl!
