Growing My Own Lettuce
A friend of mine posted on Facebook, an article on how to regrow vegetables that you purchased from the grocery store. I thought why not give it a try! However, my first attempt totally failed. I did not see any growth for the entire week. The lettuce would not thrive. It was totally dead. I was surprised because I got it from the farmer's market. I also had some lettuce from the grocery that was big and full. I was at the end of the Romaine lettuce with only just a few tiny leaves in the center. I decided to keep them to see if it would grow. All I did was place the stalk of the lettuce in a clear plastic cup, and filled it with water and placed the cup next to my window. The very next day I thought I noticed it grow just a little. On the third day my husband noticed some substantial growth. I have had the lettuce in water for a little over a week. All I do is add fresh water every other day.
I think I am going to plant the lettuce, so it will grow further. Here is a link that shows you other vegetables that can regrow again. Regrow Your Own Groceries
Let me know if you try it.
