Lettuce abundance

My raised beds in the mountains are producing prolific lettuce; undoubtedly the rich soil and cooler temperatures are favorable to excellent leaf growth.

I've had nice mesclun mix in flats for many years, and good lettuce in my main vegetable garden in the Piedmont, but these lettuces reflect how lots of nutrients (from the compost in the beds) and plenty of water produce succulent leaves.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
