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.
