Claytonia

Claytonia, also called Miner’s Lettuce (among other things), has been a great high tunnel crop.  Lily and I seeded it on new Year’s Eve and have been harvesting it heavily for months now.  It’s a wonderful cold weather crop and it has wonderful succulent leaves.  Tiny flowers from in the cup of the leaves and are edible as well. It is best eaten the same day it is picked.

In the photo, Lily is planting tomato transplants into the high tunnel.
