The photo on the left is butter lettuce coming up in a row. Hopefully in a month or two it will look like the photo in the middle! This lettuce was in a "tape" that was 6 feet long. You just lay it on the ground, cover it with a little bit of dirt and... VOILA! It starts to grow!
Our kids love lettuce as do the staff. We cannot wait to have fresh things from our own gardens!
The photo on the right is Mint which I found in the Haitian street market. It's starting to stand up straight and I pray it will grow because it is supposed to keep rats away. It seems that they do not like the strong smell!
