Pinterest is a wonderful and informative thing isn’t it? I saw this pin a while back and finally got around to try it out. It said you can “regrow” romaine lettuce. After you cut off what you need for your salad save the root and put it in some water and watch it grow. What do you know…it works! The top picture is yesterday afternoon, the bottom one today. Look how much they have grown in one day. The one on the right has been in my window for about 4 or 5 days I think. The one on the left just yesterday morning.
I change out the water every couple of days and rinse the root off to keep it from getting slimy. Other than that I just leave it alone. We’ll see how much lettuce I’ll be able to harvest.
