Now for something totally off topic. A friend of mine posted a photo on Facebook of some lettuce that she was re-growing and I just had to give it a try.
Cut the stump off your next head of romaine lettuce.
Place it in a container with about 1/2" of water in the bottom. Change the water everyday. (Your family will think you have lost your mind at this point.)
By Day 5 things were starting to change.
And here is is today. (I had only left a very small stump on the left one, and it is not growing nearly as quickly as the others.) It might be a while before I can make a salad, but it is fun to watch!
