Q: I have been growing butter lettuce, mesclun, arugula, and spinach in my garden. It is the most delicious lettuce I've ever had. My question is this: if I try to gently wash the lettuce and spin in a spinner, it still ends up wilting the lettuce very quickly because the leaves are so fragile. Is there something I'm missing?

Is there a better way to wash your garden lettuce and keep the lovely texture? Thanks so much.
