After only 3 or 4 days, the lettuce seeds in my AeroGarden have sprouted and are growing quite nicely, as you can see in this pic:
Only one pod has not sprouted just yet...not bad at all! My lettuce plants outside in the raised beds are not faring so well. 4 of them turned yellow and withered, the others seem suspended in time, not deteriorating but not growing much either. Don't know what the problem is...I gave both beds a thorough turning and loosening of the soil and added manure to mix in. No big deal, if they don't work out, I'll have nice indoor lettuce, and will put some warm weather crops in the raised beds, like squash, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
