Addie, that is one gorgeous pie. Apple?

GG...wow! Your romaine did great growing from the root. I'm impressed!
Yes. I usually use 10 large Granny Smith apples for my pie. But for this one I had only seven. So it was not as high as I usually make it. It went to my daughter's house. I love apple pie, but too much sugar for me.

Lol GG! Does your Romaine enjoy the occasional glass of wine? Just kidding, clever idea!

Those are two of my favourites I used to watch with my Dad. We liked Bridge Over the River Kwai as well.

I am still up, having dragged around all day and had too long a nap. Now I am feeling better and wide awake. I have to put the edging around the afghan my friend and I made as a shower gift. It is due next Sunday so I want to get it done. That is quiet work that may make me tired as staring at the screen doesn't to it for me.

Hmmm, I wonder if a bit of wine would help the roots grow faster?

Thanks! There's a thread somewhere about different foods you can grow from their scraps, including romaine, celery, green onions, etc. I just started another romaine plant yesterday.

Any advice? I've tried two and they both rotted. I'm trying another one now.

I just cut a thin slice off the bottom and changed the water every day or two. I kept it in a sunny window most of the time. The leaves started growing right away and it took about three weeks the roots to develop.

Thanks. How much leaf did you leave on top?
