Another beautiful lettuce. I did have my lettuce featured on the cover of a book one time. A lady was looking at a head of Batavian lettuce, a crisp green-leaf lettuce at my Grower's market booth in Ashland. Something about the way she was looking at it made me tell her she could have it. Her gaze was enough; I didn't need money. She mentioned something about taking pictures for a book, but I didn't really care. Much later, like 16 months, certainly the next summer, she brought me her book with my lettuce on the cover and the chapter headings. I was so surprised. The book is called Green For Life.
It contains true stories of how folks got well by making and consuming green drinks including common weeds. She was one of the first books purporting green drinks that I saw. My 15 minutes of fame(so far...)
