I just came from WM and picked up some potting mix to go into the new porch garden - unnamed yet. I am getting it ready to do some direct seed sowing and plant some things I need to get in the ground. I am also getting an area out the back door garden for these babies. See how big they are. I am planting them this weekend and will begin some new seeds in these containers.
The lettuce will be ready to eat in maybe 3-4 weeks, I'm hoping anyway.
The broccoli is also getting big. I have no idea how long it takes broccoli to make but I'll be as happy as a lark when I cook me some. It might be just enough for me.
I have to tell you about my grandson last year. My daughters 3 kids have taken and interest in gardening the last couple of years. Last year - The Oldest grew some snap beans. He would pick 1 or 2 pods every few days. At the end of the week, April cooked a can of snap beans to go with dinner and cooked The Oldest kids beans separate for him to eat. He said that was the best beans he ever ate. I am very proud of Gavin, Ben and Luci (daughters 3) for taking an interest and for wanting to grow their own veggies.
Hope you all have a great weekend and that it is warmer.
(PS sorry I haven't been around much lately but this is the new year and I am still closing the books for last year and I am very busy. I'll be back around more in a few weeks.
