    Good job on the video. I like the idea of being able to keep the lettuce going for a long time. Mine got bitter in July when they were too large. Do you re-plant in the summer as well?

  8. Aside from the salad bowl, can’t she be responsible enough to wear reusable gardening gloves instead of those disposable ones. You would think gardener’s would try to do what they can to save this beautiful planet.

  9. Thanks for posting this.

  10. video is a bit basic for me now but its an awesome video for beginers.

  11. Great idea — I have been growing tons of extra lettuces every year to give to friends and neighbors. Now I going to make up some bowels and give them instead. It is even better then my fresh picked gifts. They get to pick it fresh when they want it. It also teaches them how it should be picked – one leaf at a time. NOT chopping and killing everything. Good video

    Captn’

  12. $20!!! Pffffffffffft.

  13. @Pikachucute123ful Great! Share a video of yours, if you can. Would love to see what you came up with!

  14. @cookingupastory
    Wow thanks! I didn’t know for sure if it was edible or not, i will try to make one of my own!

  15. @Pikachucute123ful I wouldn’t try eating them in the bowl they’re grown in – but, yes!, eat the different greens as they mature. You don’t necessarily cut off the whole head (depends on variety you’re growing), but you can snip at the larger leaves on the outside. Wash, place in serving bowl, and add some other yummy stuff – or eat plain! It looks beautiful *and* it’s edible! I thot they had a great idea all around. =)

  16. I have a question, can you eat the salad bowls when all the plants on them are fully grown or are the salad bowls just there to look pretty? please reply back
