This is a great tasting gem! Also known as miners lettuce because the early California gold miners ate it on the way out west. I think it's actually categorized as a weed. It's amazingly productive and keeps coming back all winter or spring. It goes to seed in warm weather but is a great addition to your winter salad mixes. In the square foot garden you plant 9 of these per square. A little later in the year these start to grow a small, edible white flower. You're guests will probably never know what this is in your salads as you entertain during the winter months, but they will certainly love it.
