Week 5

Week 6

Week 6

Week 6: As you can see we are growing two different types of lettuce… one is doing better than the other. But it's all growing well!! Can't wait to try some.

Week 7

Week 7

Week 7: We are finished with this batch of lettuce… starting a new batch. Some things we learned:

  1. Probably easier to grow one kind of lettuce at once, because they tend to grow at different rates.
  2. I *think* we were supposed to plant more than one seed in each section. I don't know for sure but our plants didn't get very full. (Thoughts?)
  3. We had tons of fun with this and made out Homeschool year extra special!
  4. Home grown food is easy and DELICIOUS!!
