Valerianella locusta), also known as lamb’s lettuce, is another hardy winter green. It has a somewhat nutty flavour with a soft texture, rather than crunchy. It’s a great winter gap filler, and can be used in winter salads or cooked like spinach. You can grow it as a cut-and-come-again salad green or harvest the whole plant. In either case, successive sowing will ensure a continuous supply.
