hydroponic lettuce!

lettucelettuce 3 For Valentines Day my mother-in-law gifted us a hydroponic lettuce growing station. I’m not sure what the proper name of it should be, but it’s essentially a tub holding water with a styrofoam piece floating on top. Small holes are drilled into the styrofoam where the plants are inserted. It’s so cool!photo (9) As you can see in the top left photo, in February our lettuce plants were teeny tiny babies. We haven’t had the best of luck with gardening (see here) so we didn’t have super high hopes. To our surprise, our baby lettuce continued to grow and flourish, even though we literally did nothing to promote this. Yay for easy, am I right?lettuce 2 A few weeks ago we were able to harvest our first lettuce heads!
We have several different varieties and I have no idea what they all are, but they’re really tasty!
What are you growing this season?
