I have gone beyond the gardening stage and now sell to the local grocery store and to the hospital and soon to be the schools.
90 heads of romaine in a 6 foot by 12 foot bay (system).
Start up was less than $200. and can be used indoors or out.
I have 7 bays operating now to produce 90 heads per week.
I sell with the root ball still attached and wrapped in a wet paper towel or in the case of the grocery store, I set up a display with cups filled half full of water and let the customer take the plant and the cup.
They love the romaine and can place the cup on the counter at home (keep it watered lika a house plant)
and they can pick leaves as they need it and the plant will live for 7-10 days with a water change every three days.
And they get a beautiful and edible plant on the kitchen counter.
