I have an embarrassing amount of lettuce varieties. I'm a sucker for red lettuce and went on a quest for butter lettuce a couple of years ago. I could order every variety Fedco carries. Anyway, some are getting old so I'm planning to throw a bunch out in a bed and see what comes up.This doesn't include kale, collards or chard....
