Planting the Winter Garden

I won this cool tabletop AeroGarden at the Refuge Farms silent auction last Saturday. I had my eye on one of these for a long time, but couldn't justify the $150 price tag just to grow some lettuce. I guess it was meant to be that this one was donated to the cause and I got to take it home for significantly less.

I planted it yesterday with varieties of romaine lettuce and because the plants grow hydroponically I should be harvesting leaves in three weeks! That should be at about the time the greenhouse will freeze up for good and end my outdoor gardening season.
