Container Garden of the Week
It looks lovely. I see it’s outdoors; otherwise, I might try in in my apartment.
love this idea, wonder if it would work in the shade here in our hot weather..
That looks exactly like the spring mix that I pay an arm and a leg for in the grocery store. How wonderful to grow it yourself.
What a wonderful mix. did you line the colander with anything to keep the soil from washing out. My younger daughter rescued one from her elder sister which has a bit of corrosion. I told her to use it outdoors for picking veggies, but hey if she could grow veggies in it all the better!
Hi – Yes, I used plastic window screening to line the colander. If you look below there is a link for how to make a colander into a planter. Just make sure it’s not in too hot a place. Metal containers can cook your plants’ roots.
This is still one of my all favorite container gardens maybe cuz I live on lettuce
