3/3- We planned on having our lettuce party on March 5th but when we came into school on Monday our lettuce was huge! Our plants on average grew 3.5 cm over the weekend. A few of our plants were starting to get some brown spots on the edge of the leaves so we made the decision to move the party up to Tuesday! A few of the girls were sad to see their plant go but it was inevitable…right? So we “harvested” the lettuce and were able to try the fruits of our labor.
Mrs. Rowland brought in cucumbers and tomatoes for us to add to the salad and other students brought in salad dressing and croutons. We had a lot of lettuce left over so we wanted to add it to the salad bar but there are some laws about that so we gave it to the teachers to eat before conferences. I have to be honest it was good lettuce and I don’t eat that kind of stuff. We cut the lettuce at the base and are trying to regrow it…we will see if we can. -DF
