Harvest Round 2/Plants want to grow, so let them.

When Patty and I (the bread baker at Woodlot), pulled the tarp off the compost pile last month, we found this tiny deer tongue lettuce rooting in this slab of rotted cardboard.   I transplanted it to one of our sub-irrigated bins, and four weeks later it is the size of a basketball, and part of the second large salad harvest for Parts and Labour.  You can see it in the bottom left corner of the black bin below.  Awesome.
