Today’s photo was taken by Davin.
Yesterday was the first day of summer (YES!), which just happens to be coinciding with the near end to some of the roof lettuce. As I was harvesting a couple of heads that were starting to get bitter, I noticed how much this head of ‘Four Seasons’ lettuce looked like a bouquet and asked Davin to take a picture of me holding it like one.
Don’t you think it could work as an alternative wedding bouquet? How about a smaller head as a boutonniere? If I were to suddenly decide to stop living in sin (16 years and counting!) I would totally do this. Maybe with a couple more heads of lettuce thrown in. Then we’d wash it up and serve it at the reception.
Someone do this! Someone go to the prom wearing this as a wrist corsage. Send me a picture when you do.
