We grow reds and greens from crunchy romaine to the most tender butterhead varieties. We all know what to do with lettuce, salads and sandwiches are at the top of the list. Store in a sealed container or bag in the refrigerator. Break apart the leaves and wash several times until the water in your bowl shows no traces of dirt, much can collect in the inner leaves. Toss several kinds together along with spicy mix or arugula for a flavorful salad.
