TELTOW, GERMANY - JUNE 01: Lettuce grows at the Teltower Ruebchen organic vegetable farm on June 1, 2011 in Teltow, Germany. Telwtower Ruebchen owners Axel and Beate Szilleweit and other organic farmers in Germany are reporting a surge in demand for lettuce and cucumbers in the wake of an outbreak of enterohemorrhagic E. coli, also known as the EHEC bacteria, that German authorities initially tentatviley blamed on cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes imported from Spain. German health authorities have since recanted and now claim they are starting over in their search for the origin of the outbreak that has killed at least 16 people and whose spread is continuing unabated in northern Germany.

Some people are taking quarantine time to cultivate new skills.

A high school senior in Massachusetts is one of those. Matt Tengtrakool started “QuaranGreen,” where he grows heads of lettuce and delivers them throughout his community via the contactless method. He says the plants are easy to take care of and grow pretty fast.

He added each pot also comes with a small booklet with tips on eating healthier and managing your own garden. Right now, he and his team have delivered 150 plants, and just received a new grant to further his project to surrounding communities.
