Because I am growing my own romaine lettuce in my kitchen!!
Yes, in my kitchen.
All over the interwebs, I have been reading how you can stick the stump of romaine lettuce in water and it will grow back.
So, being the inquisitive person I am I decided that I would try this out.
(No house with a yard makes it hard to master any mad gardening skills I may have lurking in this body of mine.)
So, I took my little stump of romaine, found a glass once belonging to my Nanny, and filled that sucker with water until it reached the bottom of the stump.
TeenThing saw my little experiment and I got the “Whatever Mom”.
BUT….a couple of days later:
There it was…LETTUCE!
(And yes, I boasted about this magical development to her, lol.)
At first I was switching out the water every day, because it was discoloured. But now, I am just leaving it be, and just the other day I checked it’s status:
I am keeping it in the kitchen window because of my two nosey cats.
For whatever reason, they don’t jump into this window.
Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can harvest this little guy and eat the fruits of my labour.
Have you ever grown anything in your apartment or on your balcony?
How did it go?
