Our lettuce sure does love having fish in the system. It's quickly growing in size - our largest plant is now more than 7" in diameter. If we wanted young leaves we could start snipping now, but we'll wait until the entire head of lettuce is ready for harvest and sale. We can't wait to try eating our first crop! We're also starting a little bit of rosemary off-site to fill in around our growing lettuce.
While we started our lettuce off-site and then transplanted it (while quite young) to the media bed, here on the left you can see the first sprouts of seeds started right in the raft system. This is a mix of basil and lettuce. The young seedlings have popped up quickly. We now have the grow lights turned on so that they can continue to grow. Which will grow faster? Green leaf lettuce or basil?
