Winter Indoor Lettuce Gardening

I saw this on Pintrest so I decided to try it.  It works!  I saved the bottom cores of some romaine lettuce heads and put them in a bowl with a little water  (I need to add a little water every day).  After a few days, leaves started to sprout!  It's not enough to make a salad, but if I had a lot of them it would be.  Also, you can try this with green onions - just plant the root ends in soil in a pot and keep them in a light windowsill.  I have a friend who grows lemon grass the same way (find it at your local Asian grocery store).  Good luck!
