Oman oh man oh man everyone, I have some great news. My lettuce experiment is yielding fantastic results in phase 2. As you may well remember, several weeks ago I tried to regrow lettuce from... LETTUCE. It's daring, I know. It appeared to actually be working! Than all of a sudden it seemed to max out at like an inch or so of growth.
I found out later that my husband took a bite out of the top of it. But that's neither here nor there, for BEHOLD, I give you TEENY BABY LETTUCES growing out of the stubby remains of last week's salad!
Good job nature! Brilliant. I can't imagine this will come to any kind of conclusion in which I will be able to resurrect a salad from the ashes of an old salad, like some kind of vegetal phoenix rising to live another day on my dinner plate. But it looks cool, and it's free entertainment. I show my son every morning. =)
Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday! -E
