HEIRLOOM One day, if you are fortunate, you will visit the gardens of Patrice Fortier in Quebec. His seed company, La Societe des Plantes, is one of the most unique, visionary and absolutely marvelous expressions of art, food, seed and humanity. Your life will never be the same. We had the great fortune of sailing the upper Saint Lawrence to see him and fell in love, among other things, with Organic Grosse Blonde Paresseuse Lettuce. Her translation says it all: Large Lazy Blonde. Indeed, this lusciously massive head of lime-green, melt-in-your-mouth lettuce is impressively bolt-resistant, even in the heat of summer, simply waiting, patiently, for supper.

    I love this lettuce. Easy to grow, made it through most of summer in a part shade spot in 6b! Also, the flavor is impeccable and the leaves are just gorgeous. It is on my “always grow” list.

    This is a great lettuce. It’s very versatile — happy to grow in heat or cold. The bright green leaves add a nice color to any salad and have a lovely mild flavor. This and flashy troutback are staples in my garden.
