Grow Good Fortune In Your Garden



Lettuce brings good fortune when grown in a garden.

Every year the Chinese celebrate the Chinese New Year in January. Many foods are eaten at this festival. But one, lettuce, is considered very important. The word for lettuce in the Chinese language means "grow fortune". It is devoured by the Chinese dragon and this promises a prosperous new year. The lettuce scattered in the streets is not swept up but is left to nature. Sweeping is considered equal to sweeping away the good fortune.

Growing delicious lettuce in the home garden is very easy even for beginners.
