Big Time Lettuce Growing
Ok, another video, and this one is about growing, not dogs! This video is less that 5 minutes long, and the music is REALLY BAD. But it’s an amazing piece from the Discovery Channel showing a large scale greenhouse producing heads of lettuce using “deep pool floating raft technology.” They use vacuums to help plant the seeds, they show the process of potting up, and how they harvest them. The video also mentions how growing indoors eliminates the need for pesticides and keeps the fertilizers from contaminating the eco system. The farm produces 500 plants per square yard in a period of 45 days during the summer. So cool!
