Heirloom and or interesting lettuces for heat/summer?
Which heirloom or "interesting" (i.e. bronze leaf etc.) lettuces for summer? I'm growing red oak leaf and heard it is tolerant of summer heat.... Which others? It seems a shame that when all the other salad veggies are best straight from the garden (summer) (like cucumber tomatos etc.) the lettuces aren't at their peak! I have alot of nice shade I can grow them in which would help keep them cooler.... Can marvel de quatre saisons (quattro stagioni - four seasons) lettuce grow in summer? Or should I wait for that one untill fall? I particularly like cutting (loose leaf) and bibb/butterhead and romaine type lettuces.... :)
