Container Gardening Update: Lettuce, Tomatoes, Basil & More
Container gardening is an activity that I really enjoy. What I enjoy most is my wild attempt to try to grow as much as I can in a small space. Let me tell you, it’s amazing what you can grown in a 3 x 6 space and smaller. This year I have a lot of veggies and herbs in small to large pots, but to keep some floor space I moved some of the pots to a large plastic shelf tucked in a corner. But enough about that…
Since I started my seed in early April, I now have ever-growing tomatoes, cilantro, sweet mint, Thai lime basil, tomatillos, thai purple eggplant (albeit still small), cucumbers, Chinese chives, baby oakleaf lettuce, and I’m having a slightly unsuccessful time at growing carrots. More on that in another post. Many of the seeds are heirloom and came from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, a small business in Missouri.
Here are some current pictures of my garden:
