Dear Lettuce Challenge Participants, and Lettuce Curious Community Members,

Some thoughts and questions:
We cannot wait to see what this Thursday and Friday brings. Our windowsill lettuce plants are small and some are scraggly, but they are vibrant green, and they are growing! It’s been a fun first experiment, but a cold spring (with heaters that are very tough on our delicate plants). Today we were musing over whether later timing would be better, or if the end of the year seems rushed. We also considered Kale! Wondering if a hardier plant would be a better window companion – less stress, less demands, and we can start them in the Fall? Would love to hear your response. Thanks again for lettuce us know if you’ll need us to pick up poster or plant entries. Leaving them in the office for our green schools volunteers to pick up will be a big help. Just email ptacgreenschools @ gmail.com and let us know. THANKS!
