  •  That's why I don't bother with broccoli (4+ / 0-)

    and (especially) brussel sprouts.  Bugs get in all the cracks and crevices and don't get washed away.  Just one in a salad is enough to ruin your appetite for the rest of the crop

    Maybe it's dumb, but I'd rather eat frozen broccoli and sprouts.

    I didn't have that much trouble with lettuce.  I used to grow lettuce but haven't in years.  When lettuce has problems, it attracts little green caterpillars.  They are easier to take care of.  You just use some organic spray.  Better still, cut back on the nitrogen a little.  

    If you get the urge to grow lettuce, let me recommend, if you like red leaf, that you grow Vulcan.  That was my favorite of all the red leaf varieties I tried.  It's very beautiful, too.
