buttercrunch lettuce and marigolds in wooden wine box, originally uploaded by Crystalyn Kae.
My new favorite thing is growing my own lettuce. For some reason when I buy lettuce, it goes bad in the fridge before I eat it all – but growing it myself lets me harvest as needed . .and it tastes truly delicious. (Who knew?)
Anyway, I got this genius container lettuce idea from the book: ‘Garden Anywhere’ by Alys Fowler. We have lots of crates left over from a booth display so I kidnapped a few. The book suggests to treat them with danish oil, but I have a big costco jug of expired olive oil – so I used that. My only recommendation is to use screws to keep the sides together – mine is bursting at the seams!
