There are times when I stand in awe of nature's beauty. How she keeps things in balance and how everything just seems to happen at just the right times. Tomatoes arrive just in time to make your 4th of July BBQ sauce and they stick around for pretty much the rest of the year either fresh or canned. Beans get you through the shoulder months. Nice plumb broccoli heads and potatoes arrive as the weather starts to cool making for some nice hot casseroles and soups. Strawberries joyfully announce the arrival of summer and apples the arrival of fall. And who doesn't enjoy a nice cold slice of watermelon just as the summer heat begins to wear its welcome.
And then there's lettuce.
I'd much rather eat lettuce in the warmer months.
