We Might be Headed for a Shortage of Salad Blends

Bad news, salad lovers ― there might be a shortage of mesclun mix on the horizon. Most of our wintertime leafy 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 pull and toss greens.

Normally, we’re also able to get lettuce from California ― which kicks up production right about now ― to make up for a shortage of Arizona greens, but the same wet weather has delayed planting in California.
