I don’t really know anything about plants, but the lettuces that come in our Green Bean Delivery bin keep arriving with the plant still tucked into a small bit of soil. We cut off what we intended to eat, and then, just for kicks, put the rest of the plant in a jar of water. Sure enough, it grew some more leaves.
Not enough, thus far, to make a giant salad. But it’s extremely cool, 2-3 weeks after you thought you were done with your salad, to harvest enough fresh leaves for a sandwich or wrap. Needless to say, this is quickly becoming standard operating procedure around our house.
Our little fireplace nursery is usually home to at least two plants at a time now. Next up: Figuring out if we can replant these outside (assuming spring ever comes).
