2023 Vegetable of the Year

The “Vegetable of the Year” is a riff on the “one book, one community” concept that many communities have adopted to boost community literacy. Uniting the community around growing a different vegetable each year is one way to boost community health because it encourages people to share growing tips, recipes, and enthusiasm about growing a single vegetable.

The Cable Community Farm is pleased to announce that the Vegetable of the Year for 2023 will be…lettuce! Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is one of the oldest known vegetables, developed from L. serriola, a wild plant around the Mediterranean region used as a medicinal herb as far back as 4500 BC. These cool weather plants are one of the easiest, fastest and earliest crops home gardeners can enjoy. Health benefits vary by variety, but lettuce is generally known for being vitamin-rich (particularly in Vitamin A), promoting sleep and eye health, and improving hydration. 

This year’s variety “Allstar Gourmet”, is a blend of selected varieties of reds and greens that provide loft, interesting texture, good shelf life, and fancy appearance. Free packets of seed will be available at local businesses and given to all of the elementary students at the Drummond Area School District. Fun facts, activities, and workshops will be promoted throughout the year.

As she has each year, Mimi Crandall, a local artist, has created a beautiful pastel painting entitled “Gourmet Lettuce with an Abstract Touch.” Mimi shares: “This pastel painting reflects an overall pattern which gives it its abstract quality. The painting started with complimentary colors in an exuberant underpainting of water color. The details of the many colors, textures, and shapes of the leaves found in the gourmet lettuce mix, the 2023 vegetable of the year, create the next layer of detail. The finished painting does read as a wonderful bowl of lettuce to enjoy.”For more information and to keep current with growing tips and recipes for lettuce, “like” the Cable Community Farm on Facebook or contact the Cable Community Farm at cablecommunityfarmwi@gmail.com or 1-715-539-6287.
