I like this line about what makes the winter lettuce grow.
It is visual, and it has a poetry to it that I often enjoy.
And who knows? Maybe it stood out because I work in crop insurance.
Good writing can just jump off the page at you…
Outside the Monterey County Courthouse in Salinas, California, the Downtown Merchants’ Christmas decorations glittered in the thin sunlight that makes the winter lettuce grow.
