I have abunch of leaf lettuce that is going to go to waste with the cold weather coming.
Can I vac seal it and either put it in the fridge or freeze it?
Dont know if anyone has ever done this.
Try putting it in (roots on) in a tub with water. Think Hydroponics. I know if you put celery in a cup of water it will keep fresh for a long time. You can grow lettuce from the butt ends if you put them in water. I have done that with romaine.
That's probably your best bet. If you have good temp inside and enough light you could have lettuce all year.
Every year my mother grows lettuce, a LOT of lettuce…… She just likes to see stuff grow…….All of a sudden, I will find a HUGE zipper bag in the frig filled with lettuce…. She will wrap it in a wet paper towel…… I’m the only one that will eat it, so it’s not something I can eat all at once, but it will last for several weeks like that for me……BTW the hydroponics works also…. I have a buddy that has a 4’ x 8’ shelf set-up with PVC piping to grow lettuce. He is picking enough for a salad for his family at least 2-3 times a week……. SB
