Here in the Northeast, the early adopters of the locavore movement had a challenge when trying to eat within 100 miles of their homes: winter. While it was possible to find storage crops such as roots, apples, and cabbages--as well as to can, dry, and freeze much of summer's bounty--fresh greens were hard to come by. Luckily we can all grow the little known Mache, also known as Lamb's Lettuce, to fill the void! This satisfying cold hardy green is a soothing, nutritious, and flavorful, with its own invisible insulation like a lamb's warm coat. It is eaten fresh and is excellent as a salad base. Grow this green in your cold season and keep your tummy warm.
