I like eating this lettuce because I can walk around the house asking, "Would you like a garden salad? Literally?"
Well. I've decided to go it again on the starter pots and I think I'm getting better this. Look at all of these sprouts.
And then on a whim because I had the seeds and I remembered something from elementary school, I shook some seeds over wet paper towel and covered it up. And presto if those didn't sprout too and root into the paper. I immediately moved them outside to get the sun on the them and they are looking great.
And sprouts keep coming.
So I think my odds of a not buying lettuce or spinach anymore are getting pretty damn good. And now I'm feeling pretty cocky about my abilities to sprout seeds. Every trial I learn more. I think I might not need to buy plants anymore and grow everything from seeds. Well maybe not. I'm an impatient man in my garden.
