The name refers to a few things. First, I recently read that many people consider lettuce to be the quintessential vegetable, possibly representing the very essence of the vegetable kingdom. I live on a small family organic vegetable farm in Maryland, so lettuce (and beets, and garlic and flowers) are at the center of our lives and table. And secondly, I am beginning to sew and many mothers of little girls can tell you that the “lettuce edge” is as lovely as it is ubiquitous. It adorns the bottom of baby tees, the edge of ruffles and the tops of cute little socks with a soft, waving and curling edge. And finally the name is a play on the cutting edge. I am trying to figure out new and edgy ways to approach farming, parenting and Jewish life. It might sound serious, but I promise to try to write with a sense of humor and humility — because when man (or woman) plans (a blog) — God laughs. I hope others with similar interests will join me here. Guest writers are always welcome, send an email to thelettuceedge @ gmail. com or leave me a comment.
