It is very common for lunch at Full Belly Farm to be a large salad piled high with the various kinds of lettuce we grow (romaine, butter, oak leaf, red leaf, green leaf, sierra — the list goes on!), carrots, homemade croutons, and if we are lucky, some of Jenna’s homemade salad dressing. Lettuce is a relatively easy crop to grow and we cultivate it almost year round, except in the heat of the summer. Lettuce, a low calorie vegetable, is a storehouse of vitamins and phyto-nutrients.  Lettuce should be stored in in the refrigerator and rinsed before eating- it may still have a bit of soil from the Full Belly Fields on some of the leaves!
