Regrowing lettuce

One of the lettuce stumps rotted away after a week but the other one kept producing new leaves. I am so pleased with how the experiment is going!

Regrowing vegetable stumps

I like experimenting with plants. I've tried growing different kinds of edibles from seeds and cuttings in my patio. My recent experiment with a salad green that I purchased from the market was a success.

The salad vegetables came with healthy roots. After cutting the leaves for salad, I planted the remaining heads in soil. On the second day, new leaves were seen sprouting out from the stumps.

Day by day, the leaves grew taller and larger. The photo below shows the stumps exactly one week after I've planted them. At the rate they're growing, I will have a new crop of salad greens in no time.
