Eco-Kids Tuesday

Welcome to Eco-Kids Tuesday!!

My eco-happy idea came from Pinterest!
Very simple instructions... take the stump of Romaine lettuce and stick it in dirt.
A week or so later....

Another few days...

This is crazy!  It works!
I used organic lettuce, in organic soil.
I am going to let this one keep growing until it just starts to look like it is done...
I am very curious how big it will get!

Each week, you all bless me with all the wonderful links you share!
I visit each one and try really hard to comment, but sometimes fall short of that goal. 
But please know every link is greatly appreciated!
