Amish Deer Tongue Lettuce


Saratoga and Campbell Libraries collaborated with Master Gardeners of Santa Clara County and other libraries last year to establish Silicon Valley Grows. This year they are joined by Gilroy and Los Altos Libraries along with community gardens, local farms and sustainability advocates.
 
The 2015 seed selection is Amish Deer Tongue Lettuce which dates back to the 1840s. According to Slow Food USA the plant has high heat tolerance, making it less prone to bolting under high temperatures. It has good texture and wonderful flavor that is pleasantly sharp. It’ll make a nice addition to your fresh spring salads.
 
Try growing some Amish Deer Tongue lettuce by picking up a free packet of seeds at Saratoga Library until supplies last. To experiment with other heirloom seeds, check out the helpful Plant the Seed book list in the March issue of the library’s newsletter!
