Bad news, salad lovers there might be a shortage of mesclun mingle on the horizon. Most of our wintertime leafy dark-greens are grown in the fields of Arizona, and this is normally a pretty reliable system. But this season has been uncharacteristically damp, and mildew has forced farmers to attract and pitch greens.
Normally, we can get loot from California which knocks up make right about now to make up for a shortage of Arizona commons, but the same wet weather has retarded planting in California.
What does this mean for you? You may soon insure a shortage of your favorite salad combination it is appropriate to last for about two weeks.
