X2 .... Cabbage every time!As current economics suggest i.e. the cost of lettuce has increased due to floods, energy crisis, war in Ukraine, and bad TV programming ... replace lettuce with cabbage. Like cockroaches, cabbage will survive a nuclear holocaust.
Always wondered if growing lettuce on a trip would work - the type of 'pick and come' again varieties?
did anyone observe that while Cold Shoulder and Lettuce alone went to 10 Shekels, cabbage last week was 5 to 6 Shekels.Chinese cabbage - pak choi, bok choi work well as a lettuce replacement as they are not as strong flavoured as normal European cabbage.., quite sweet actually and packed full of goodness etc. They last longer in a cooler also.
