Lettuce

Lettuce is a growing crop in Dominica. It is planted both in small personal gardens but increasingly also in big greenhouses. It’s easy to grow and it produces quickly. It sells well on the local market but is often exported to the neighboring islands.

This picture was taken in Suzannah’s garden. She grows her lettuce in a home made elevated flowerbed to keep pests away.
