Escaped Lettuce // Winter Cabbage

From a kind cabbage site

Insurrection in Produce! Cabbages leap crispers. Tumble from trays. Roll down aisles. Exit into the chill beyond. Climb planters, burrow roots, sprout, fiercely blossom; then whither, rot and shrivel back into tight black fists to still menace the store.

    Some of you have emailed asking whether escaped lettuce is a menace, and the truth is I don’t know. It might be. We’ll all just have to wait and see.

    I saw one peeking in the window, I was upset but didn’t have the heart to scare it away.
