Cathy, Nathan, and I were out shopping at SM North EDSA when I decided to pass by the organic area of the vegetable section. A few minutes earlier, I popped a PHP62.00 200-gram bag of mixed greens from Dizon Farms into my cart for the lemon butter tuna salad with capers I was planning to make myself tomorrow night for dinner.
I then picked up a bag of the organic lettuce and was surprised to see that the hydroponic lettuce cost just a little over PHP40.00 for 200 grams! Furthermore, it was a nice Romanian lettuce, fibrous and flavorful, unlike the usual mixed greens mix which doesn’t have much color and texture.
If you like salads, don’t be afraid to buy the hydroponic lettuce. It’s just as good, if not better, than regular big farm lettuce, and as it turns out, it’s even cheaper!
