Placed the stump in the water.
This is week 1 or after 6 days...There are some small green sprouts appearing. I am having to refresh the water often. I think I picked a bad time to start this, because we are leaving today to go out of town for a week.
10/27/12 - about two weeks now...water was changed once while we were gone...returned today and had to cut away some rotten romaine on the side of the stump. So this attempt may flop altogether and I may have to start again. The lettuce stump looks very greenish...not so sickly green, but veggie green (to me). There are some new little shoots of green that have appeared...
