Well, it’s Independence Day and what better information can I give you than to share one way to be independent from your local grocery store? See the parallel…..? Independence Day….independence from the grocery store? Get it? Ok, moving on.

If you do this project, I would love to hear about your experiences, especially if you do end up trying this with store-bought lettuce.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely Independence Day!
