Buongiorno Baracolle

Did you know that lettuce is thought to be a selected variety of Lactuca serriola, a wild lettuce found throughout Europe, Asia, and North Africa? It is believed to have been first cultivated in Egypt but was also a favorite amongst the ancient Greeks.

It has taken about a month but finally the barcarolle lettuce(a variety of romaine) in my Earthbox is ready for the table. It should be great with some freshly grated Parmesan and crunchy croutons.
