Seems a lot of folks have fantastic gardens already this year. Almost everyone I talk with has lettuce running out their ears. It was so cold and wet here early spring I didn’t plant any because I figured it would rot in the muck. A couple friends are keeping me supplied with the tasty greens … all kind of varieties. I most recently acquired a head of romaine, organically grown, large enough to rival anything I’ve seen in the stores.
My little container garden this year is so radically different for me I sometimes don’t know what to think about it. It’s downright small. And it’s chock full and has room for more and I think I’ll have plenty to feed me through the summer.
The tidy little space has me rethinking large garden mentality. Every summer I become a slave to the tangles mass of big garden, spending every waking minute either thinking about working it or actually working it. Then of course one has to eat, can, freeze, dry or dispose of the bounty!
