The larger Aerogarden I got J for his birthday has really taken off. The salad greens grew faster and look way better than our traditionally grown ones in soil. If I'm remembering correctly, we planted it all about 3-4 weeks ago and finally had our first harvest of lettuce! 2 7/8 ounces of delicious, healthy salad greens! A very tasty addition to our dinner.I tried not to cut it too low, so they should grow back for round two, right?


  1. Congratulations on the beautiful lettuce! It should come back, but why not just pinch off the outer leaves to leave the growth center to grow bigger?

  2. You have to leave the growing point so that it will grow back...about the bottom 1-2 inches. Your lettuce looks great!

  3. George - I didn't know I could do that. If it regrows I'll try it.

    Katrina - 1-2 inches... hmmm I think I cut it high enough. We'll find out! :)
