TESCO and Morrisons have been forced to introduce strict limits on the number of lettuces shoppers are allowed to buy after a spate of cold weather in Spain resulted in a low yield of out-of-season vegetables.
This comes after the much publicised courgette crisis last week.
Cardiff citizens have been reacting to the shortage. And most were quick to see the funny side:
@WelshDalaiLama Lettuce rationing? Why? Just kos.

But some have spotted a money making opportunity:
For sale – 3 nearly new iceberg lettuce from a pet and smoke free home. Open to offers. Courgettes and broccoli also available.

However, a few can’t understand what the fuss is about:
I'd love to meet someone actually gutted at rationing of #lettuce.
