Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Garden Note: Drunken Woman Lettuce

This bowl full of Drunken Woman lettuce was planted on March 5th. We began to harvest it about one month later. It makes a tasty addition to romaine lettuce and was very easy to grow. I purchased it from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, mainly because of the unique name. I can't imagine how they came up with such a name, but would be interested to know. It is an organic variety that had an excellent germination rate.

Was it sweet? bitter? Would like more info. Dirt Ditty

It is a soft lettuce that tastes similar to iceberg but without the crunch. But there is a definite taste of bitterness to it as you finish chewing it. Perhaps that's where the name "drunken" comes from.
