I was saving the bottoms of the lettuce for a printing project, and came back with new lettuce! It was really that incredibly easy.
Place rinsed stems into a container, cover, and leave in the refrigerator. The moisture from the rinsed lettuce will create condensation if the container is closed, and the refrigeration prevents wilting. (Alternatively, place in a bit of water. Try near a sunny window vs. in the shade?). About ten (10) days later, check for growing new lettuce! Trim and add to your favorite salad mix.
I also included part of some onion I hadn’t used …
After you have exhausted the lettuce stem, chop-it-up and “make it disappear” with garden magic. Try again with other vegetable stem scraps!
