The above were planted directly into the ground. They were in my refrigerator! I chopped off the top part and planted the bottom!
Hey there! Ready to become a romaine-growing expert? Here's the scoop:
First, save the bottom inch or two of a romaine lettuce head you've recently used. It should have a nice, solid core. Next, place that sucker in a jar or glass with about an inch of water in it. Then, watch as the magic happens! Change out the water every couple of days or so, and make sure the bottom of the stalk stays submerged. Eventually, you'll start to see new growth sprouting up from the center of the core. Once those baby leaves start getting bigger, you can transplant your new little romaine friend into some soil. Voila! You've got yourself a tasty and homegrown romaine lettuce that you can brag about to all your friends.
