Three Lettuces

Three lettuces that are great performers. Grand Rapid Red seems to sprout fast, grow faster and hold it's own even when it gets hot. A dependable producer!

 New for me, Yugoslavian Red Butter head from Seed Savers Exchange is everything I had hoped for..crazy red/green leaves that have a bright green core in the middle of the head.

But my favorite so far is Tennis Ball, also from Seed Savers Exchange, that is one of Thomas Jefferson's favorite varieties that he grew at Monticello. Perfect butter heads that are bright lime green. At dusk they glow from far  away. The three make a wonderful color combination!
