"LETTUCE" Start Container Gardening!
We hope to place an order with one more company for seeds soon, too!
In addition we have a few places locally that we hope to get some "starters" from so we aren't relying solely on the 'from seed' attempts.
BUT...one of the things I overlooked - and I don't know WHY - Lettuce! You see, one of the many things we are going to do with this Container Garden/Rooftop Garden is RE-USE various things around the stations that we would never use again but have been in storage for YEARS now! We have found MANY old CD Storage Units as well as old hand-made wooden boxes we used to hold and file different sized records throughout the years. We will be drilling holes in the bottom and sides for drainage, too! But because most of these are smaller - or should I say - not as deep - we are going to put herbs in them - and just today we discussed various lettuces. From the research we've done - it seems like they would do well in the shorter containers. So, yeah...tomorrow we will have our first worker-bee and I will report back next week with some of our progress!
