Little Gem Lettuce Seed Mix from Hudson Valley Seeds. Heirloom seeds & contemporary art, all in one pack! Illustrated by Jessica Poser.
Small vegetables are not just for small gardens. They are, in fact, for all who enjoy exceptional eating. These tiny lettuce heads, maxing out at about 8 inches in diameter, deliver delicate texture and sweetness rarely seen in giant heads. They are also charming in the garden: their compact, tidy form contributes an air of formality and neatness, especially when laid out in a grid. Harvested as mature heads, they can be turned into stunning salad by cutting them into wedges--or even halves--and allowing their intact beauty to shine through.
