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!

A school newsletter blurb to share:

  1. PLEASE NOTE: We changed the menu, so it is easier to search through previous Lettuce Challenge Posts (and other posts) by clicking on the menu item above – not so much scrolling. Seems easier, let us know what you think.


    1. Small and strong, wonderful! We are following the same days we used for dropoff in February. Half were on Thursday, and half were on Friday. I’ll send an email reminder with some reminder details like labeling, etc.
