For the past several months I haven't seen any decent fresh lettuce in the supermarkets. There's still plenty of that abominable bagged lettuce, more of it, in fact, it seems,than before; and there's the old standby iceberg, dry and gnarled as usual, as well as that new-fangled hydroponic stuff. But all the romaine and green leaf lettuce I've been seeing of late is so scrawny and sad looking that I wouldn't eat it if they were giving it away.
I'm wondering whether this is just a local thing or is there a national shortage. Bad weather hurt the crops?
