Those are all three delicious varieties! I grew all three in my first AG salad garden, and while I cannot remember specifically what each one was like (I always harvested a variety to make a salad), I loved my AG lettuce. So much more flavorful, filling, and healthy feeling. I know it sounds like hyperbole, but when I would eat a salad with my AG greens, I always felt such a surge of energy after. Maybe placebo effect, but those afternoon salads got me through many a dreary day this past winter (and by past I mean like a few weeks, as winter just kind of ended here about 10 days ago). Congrats and good luck!
Looks good. I have found when I had my Sprout (and even in other machines) that there can be one hole that does not grow as fast. Try switching the slow pod with a pod that grows faster. It may catch up

I also find some pod locations can make a difference in both my Bounty and Ultras. I also rotate, if I do not see action. What I find funny is how the same pod type, one can sprout in a day and the other will take longer. You are well on your way!
I built myself a lettuce and tomato sandwich today at noon. Unfortunately, I had no meat or cheese but I do like Miricle Whip and covered both pieces of bread with it. I then laid down a bed of freshly grown lettuce leaves from my AG garden to place sliced tomatoes on top. After assembly, I used my new dentures to devour it. Yummy, that thing was good!

My avocado is now fully ripened and I've boiled myself a pot of Dark Red Kidney beans, (I love a tablespoon or two of these on a salad.). I've made my favorite dressing (French) and will mince up a bit of red onion to add to my freshly grown salad leaves alongside sliced tomatoe.
My mouth is watering just thinking about this as I type... YUM! I'm looking forward to noon today.
