This is a quick post to describe my newest project, my garden in the apartment. A week ago I cut off the ends of three romaine lettuce hearts and placed them in water. The water I change every couple of days, and the plants are sitting on my window sill. Amazingly lettuce leaves are growing. I had read a blog about regrowing plants from your kitchen scraps, and even though I doubted I decided to try it.
The hardest time to live in an apartment is during spring gardening season, but in the apartment I have a pineapple top planted, two tomato plants and the lettuce. We should be in our house soon and I think all my plants are itching for the porch or yard home too. Here is a picture of the kitchen scrap lettuce, more will follow as the plants grow. Happy gardening!
