Miner’s Lettuce

Never really heard of miner’s lettuce before – apparently it’s in season RIGHT NOW in Northern California. I’ll keep my eyes open this weekend when I head up past Nevada City for a night of winter hut camping! I have a feeling with this weekend’s forecast, however, it might be buried in some below-the-snowline flakes!!

Here’s a succint little history on the plant from Hank Shaw where you can learn about this native plant that’s so delicious to eat. If I can’t forage some, maybe it will be a good candidate to grow in my shady back yard?
