because I’ve got too much lettuce. It’s one of the mysteries of nature that the more one picks and prunes the more one gets. I’ve tried to grow lettuce before but got too little. This year I used the “just sprinkle the seed” approach and I got way too much and it needed thinning. What a happy problem. I thinned and gave the lettuce to the neighbor on the left. Thinned some more and took it to our neighbor on the right. Thinned again and took it across the street. It still didn’t look like I’d made a dent in it so I thinned once more and took it to another neighbor – all within a 24 hour period. It’s a little less crowded but not sparse. It’s almost like multiplying loaves and fishes. Lettuce share.
