Never Buy Lettuce Again! Just Regrow it!

About two weeks ago I learned how to grow new celery
from old celery over at 17 Apart.
I think I found it on Pinterest, but who knows anymore...
anyway, I don't really eat celery.
But after reading it, I was making salad and thought
why wouldn't that work with Romaine lettuce.
So I stuck the base of it in water and, of course, forgot about it.
When I remembered...a little over a week later,
I was shocked to see lettuce!



Super cool!  So I stuck it in the garden today.


I also started two more in case this one doesn't survive.
I'll keep you posted on how well this works.
But if it does...how cool to never have to buy lettuce again!

UPDATE:  So far, of the three I planted, one died, one looks scraggly at best and the other I accidently ripped out of the garden while weeding.  Perhaps I will have to continue to buy lettuce.  I'm so dissappointed.  I have to say, there were all doing fine prior to going in the ground...maybe I should just leave them in water...hmmmm...I'll keep you posted.
