We have another big Event coming up soon. So a few weeks ago I decided to plant lots of lettuce, hoping it might all be ready in time to provide a nice fresh salad for the dinner. I bought six trays of six starters of Buttercrunch lettuce from the organic garden center and planted them in the hydroponic stands. A few weeks later I bought red romaine starters. I also tried planting a few from seed, but only two small plants have survived, which won't be ready in time. They're growing nicely even though we haven't had any rain and the weather has been fairly hot. The pump on the timer gives them regular watering.
Here's what they're looking like, four weeks later.
