“They are lettuce plants, with a couple of nasturtium plants on the side, which are also edible. We planted them for Health class, talking about healthy living. It also happened to be earth day. We also had a discussion about how little of our food is grown here in the province.
The lettuce is growing under a grow light, with a flourescent bulb designed for plant growth.
We planted the seeds exactly two weeks ago, on a Friday afternoon, and when we came back on Monday morning they had already sprouted! We water them when we notice they are getting dry, and just gave them some water for the weekend.”
