Last week my daughter and a couple of her friends gathered and sowed some lettuce seeds in a pot. We had such nice summer and i just had to organise something to plant so we can see some greens in winter.
It was a quick one but the children really enjoyed digging the soil and putting in pots then to sow some tiny seeds. It would be so nice for them to find out that we can grow some food ourselves!
Here are a couple of links from RHS about growing lettuce:
