I’ve been wanting to have a raised bed Square Foot Garden for years, but that would mean actually getting one of the men in my life to build it.
[Okay now that it has been built I recognize that I probably could have done it myself, but not as quickly and as easily as Son Number One did, and that makes me feel even more guilty for not making the jambalaya I promised him. But I will. Promise!]
I now have a honkin’ big 4-foot by 6-foot garden in the sunny spot in my back yard!
Why a square foot garden? You don’t have to dig up the hard-packed soil that’s already there. You build a frame and fill it with soil, compost, manure, etc. Much easier on the back. But, that’s for when I can post pictures.
Yesterday I spent the day in and out of the “garden,” an adventure I wanted to document with photos, but I can’t find my photo cable. I hope to do that soon, though. But in the meantime, I have found the coolest of coolio things to do in my garden. And easy! And if I’m going to kill plants, I may as well do it the easy way, right?
Look at this!
Yes! They really are growing lettuce in a grocery bag!
This opens up so many possibilities for me. I am on my way to Whole Foods Market to pick up a few
grocery bags vegetable planters.
And when I find the photo cable and upload pictures, maybe I will have pictures of grocery bag planters filled with lettuce or some other plant that needs moisture.
Are you gardening this year? Container? Indoor? Outdoor?
Do you like lettuce?
Tell me about it!
PS I am also loving watching garden videos on youtube. Don’t mock! They are very inspirational. My garden does not look like this. Yet. [Can you believe he puts rattlesnakes in his bean patch???]
