Growing local food is actually one of the ways I exercise my activism streak - this lunch has no food miles, no chemicals, no GMOs, local seeds, it supports diversity, has lower water needs, is soil regenerative (you know what I mean). I love the way the kids will graze on the salad too and help me harvest. I'm not only cultivating food, I think I'm cultivating young activists too.
I plant more lettuces every couple of weeks so that I always have young tender leaves. I like them the best.

Where do you grow your salad garden?
