Lettuce tell you what is happening out in the fields… something leafy. Here’s the deal: This year has been long in starting. In prior years, farms had product to sell in early May… but this year they are just starting to see the green. And, by green we also mean money. A lot of our farmers need us to buy lettuce (a lot of lettuce) to get the green out of the field and in the bank. So, we thank you in advance for hopping on the bunny trail.
Nutritionists and dietitians rank leafy greens as the easiest and fastest way to bulk up your vitamin intake. Vitamins including A, C, and K practically radiate from these fronds! These leafy veggies fiber you up! They also provide minerals and plant-based substances that can prevent heart disease, diabetes, and other illnesses. The major players in the green machine powerhouse line up: kale, spinach, chard, and turnip greens. All of which you should be familiar with as a FG subscriber!
