Beauty of lettuce

Usually, when we think of lettuce - we see green butterhead, rarely iceberg or cos - but they come in so many variations that some of them don't even look like lettuce.

The lettuces in the pictures below were grown 2 years ago in my garden. 
Since then I haven't been able to grow much lettuce, because of slugs. 
2 years ago I'd spotted a few slugs in my garden, but this year we had a plaque of them! 
That means we had no lettuce this year.
 I love eating and growing lettuce, so next year I'll protect it with a net and plant it in a raised bed. I hope this will help :)
