I grow a wide variety of vegetables in the garden, while I focus on good producers, some of the varieties I choose for the beauty as well. ‘Redina’ lettuce is one of these plants. It’s lovely while it’s growing, the deep red leaves are amazingly vibrant. When it starts to bolt it’s almost more lovely. Lettuces can be extremely eye catching when they start to rise up towards the sky to bloom and set seed.
I’ve been growing this variety for years and I always start a few extras so I can let them go to seed.
Do you grow any specific vegetables for their ornamental value?Filed under Around the Garden, Edible | Comment (0)
