Love your tip on keeping lettuce fresh! Just wanted to say that we have been enjoying Canada and even local greens this year.

I get Boston lettuce from a variety of places but Costco has the best price - two heads for $3 and it's delicious in salads and sandwiches. It's at least from Canada.

We are also part of a CSA that gets us lots of greens just a few hours from home all winter/spring. I'll twitter you the name of the farm when I find it! But CSA's are such good resources to finding the local stuff - even greens!


Thanks for the tip. I will try this. I'm often buying the ready bags in winter because of this reason, but they're still more expensive than the whole head. And I agree, if we can avoid taking the car for just small things....:)


This does work!
