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.)
