I will most certainly argue this. I don't know about your markets, 
maybe your growers don't know what they're doing yet -- or possibly the 
organic growers have customers who prefer smaller lettuce, which is 
indeed considered better by a lot of people. I have seen absolutely 
gorgeous displays from organic growers at market.

No time for more now, I have to go harvest (among other things, 
lettuce. It's gorgeous lettuce.)
