I love growing lettuces and experimenting with the many different varieties that work best according to the season I am growing in. At the moment I am growing Romaine lettuce, Pink Frilly Lettuce, Marvel of the Four Seasons, Purple Oak Leaf and Australian Yellow among others…
According to Ayurveda salad is best consumed in the summer months, and if you are a Pitta dominant constitution lettuce will assist you to stay balanced in the warmer months due to its cooling effect. For Vata and Kapha a salad dressing will further assist digestion and balance in the body.
