We really recommend picking what you need, when you need it. But they will keep in the fridge for a coupleof days.

Ways to cook

It’s not all about salads, although freshly cut lettuce from the garden is one of the best things about summer salads! You can try making summer soups with wilted lettuce, pea and mint. And a lot of leaves are great in stir fries.
