Micro-farm update

It's been over a month since I posted regarding my "micro-farm" set-up and I thought it a good idea to show the outcome.  I have since harvested lettuce twice from it.  This harvesting consists entirely of merely trimming the lettuce down to a few inner leaves and eating the trimmings.  This is the beauty of loose leaf lettuce over head lettuce.  It recovers in little over a week and then I trim again.  I got about four or five trimmings before I harvested the entire plant last time I tried this.  This time I'll wait and see how many times I can harvest before it goes to seed. 

I think I packed them a little tight, but it's still working.  I am considering starting another set up with led lights as the exclusive lighting source to grow spinach.
