Fresh Salads

The hydroponic lettuces have been growing nicely. A few times I've noticed that the leaves looked a little wilted and had to adjust the watering times.

We have been enjoying fresh salads for awhile now. It has been fun to pick just what we need for each meal. If you are careful you can pick the lower larger lettuce leaves and not disturb the plant. It will just keep on growing and you can keep on picking lettuce. Eventually it tops out and starts to produce seed.

I give the lettuce a little wash in cold water and then chop roughly. I think we have about six or eight different varieties.
