OTHER: Miner's Lettuce can grow in any level of light & poor soil. It likes moist shade the best. Although they plants are annuals, they are fast growing & makes a wonderful groundcover. Although different in many ways, the green flower backings reminds me of bells of ireland. The leaves of Miner’s Lettuce turn red in fall. The young leaves can be eaten in salads, & the leaves have the same taste whether plant is in flower or not. The leaves are crunchy, mild, & tender. They are also high in vitamins.
From Wikipedia: "The common name miner's lettuce refers to its use by California Gold Rush miners who ate it to get their vitamin C to prevent scurvy. It can be eaten as a leaf vegetable. Most commonly it is eaten raw in salads, but it is not quite as delicate as other lettuce. Sometimes it is boiled like spinach, which it resembles in taste.”
