Grow Your Own Lettuce .. It Really Works ! #Green

So … I have been reading around the internet for a month or so about how you can “grow your veggies from scraps” . I read the articles and thought, suuuuuurrreeee … that’ll work . But guess what ? It really DOES work, and you can regrow certain veggies from scraps ! I have been regrowing my lettuce for almost a full week (on day 6 now) and my romaine lettuce has grown so much..and I haven’t even planted it in soil ! It;s very easy to regrow,too. Simply take the bottoms of your used romaine lettuce and put the bottom into a cup with a little water at the bottom. I used a clear plastic cup for my lettuce. Sit the cup and the bottom somewhere that it can get good sunlight,and then just let it grow. Oh, I recommend that you change the water everyday to ensure that the lettuce gets clean water , because that is the only “nutrient” that the lettuce is getting considering it is not planted in a pot. Check out my photos of my newly grown lettuce and then consider doing this little EASY project yourself ! I think that once it grows just a little bit more, I will attempt to pot it and watch it grow that way.OR…I might just eat it ..and the regrow it again ! What a way to be #green and have a delicious side salad… for FREE ! Oh… word is that you also regrow other veggies like celery,green onions,bok choy,and carrot tops in this same fashion …if you’re interested !
