Continuing with the theme of leafy vegetables that I love are Lettuce. Growing them is fairly simple and they can look stylish in the garden. I try to alternate colorful types of lettuce when I plant which creates a pattern of crunchy goodness.
I'm a big fan of the loose leaf lettuces. You can start picking their succulently luscious leaves as soon as they are sizable enough to eat. Plus there are so many available to grow.
