Food - Regrowing Lettuce

I love to buy those 4 packs of specialty lettuces where you can get some red-leaf, curly-type, romaine, etc.  I recently discovered that after chopping off the bottom it is possible to plop those ends into some water and grow some more lettuce!  I am fine with making it into worm food in the compost, but if I can get some more edible leaves out of it, why not?  Here is my beautiful lettuce bowl with each nub in a different state of regrowth.  In a few days I’ll be cutting leaves!  This would be a great project for a kid and even I will be quite interested to see if any roots regenerate at the bottom end.  If so, these puppies are getting plopped back into the ground for another go-around!  I will try to keep you posted on their progress.
