A wonderful miniature lettuce

This lettuce is simply wonderful! It is a perfectly formed Iceberg type but in miniature!
Measuring only 2 or 3 inches across, tennis ball sized, it is perfectly formed, with a tightly packed crispy heart, and the perfect mouthful for a single helping; useful for the person living alone, or where only one in a household likes lettuce!

What is more, it is showing exceptional drought tolerance in this extremely dry summer, and is showing no sign of wanting to bolt. I can leave them all in the soil and cut them one at a time as needed.

Note the dry and stony soil.
