Lettuce pray for our Salads

Being a foodie, I can appreciate a good salad.  Many times, salad gets a bad rap, and I feel that is because most people don’t like to get inventive with their greens (maybe I’ll have to do a post on my favorite salad…).  Either way, if you have been near a produce section of a grocery store anytime this month, it is clear to see that something is wrong.  Missing bags of salad, no sign of my favorite green, Arugula, anywhere, and when I ask the nearest storeboy he just tells me “that’s the last bag of Spinach.”

Wait, what?

You have nothing else back there?

So…no Arugula?

Guess not
Guess not

I couldn’t figure it out, and it hasn’t gotten any better all winter; In fact, it’s gotten worse.  That Spinach incident I’m referring to happened weeks ago and I haven’t seen a bag of the green stuff since.  Popeye would not approve.

So I went to another grocery store, and there it was.  A sign, simple, but informative:

“We are running out of lettuce due to shortages in growing regions. Sorry for any inconvenience.”

Oh.

Well, great. No winter salads for me.

I created a story about it on the awesome site Storify.  Check it out, and mourn the produce section at your grocer, at least, until the temperature goes up.
