Get rich quick! Grow your own!

AARP said it was okay.  They actually encouraged it.  It was tip #74 in a recent publication:

Sprout new savings.
Grow romaine lettuce by putting the "stub" (the bottom inch or two) in a glass of water near a sunny window. You can do the same thing with celery, spring onions, napa cabbage, bok choy and similar vegetables. For best results, cut a thin layer off the bottom of the stub.

Right? Is AARP just messing with my mind?

We will see. Here is the thin layer sliced off the stub.

And here is the romaine in a sunny window.

When I make the big time, I'll send you a head.

That's pretty darned cool, your own hydroponic lettuce.

Kim--Two friends have confirmed that it works with green onions. Looking promising on day #3.
