This is a quick Survival Podcast video to show you the effects of using a fish tank as a mini greenhouse on the growth of lettuce. It has been about 3 weeks since the first video and I have cut the lettuce at least 7 times. The morning that this video was shot the ground was frozen solid. Tonight we expect sleet/ice/snow mix. Tomorrow I will still be eating from this little lettuce patch.

This is a quick Survival Podcast video to show you the effects of using a fish tank as a mini greenhouse on the growth of lettuce. The plants you are looking at were all planted about 4 weeks ago. Despite a few nights with single digit temps all the plants survived but notice the difference in growth rates.
