What?! Planted seeds on January 22. Germinated on January 26…or at least that’s when I noticed the Iceberg Lettuce seedlings popping up through the coconut husk pods. Kinda looks like a bran muffin with an alfalfa sprout in the middle. Don’t you think?
Even though I’m enjoying this cold, damp, foggy weather, I do hope the soil will be warm enough in a few weeks to set these out or I may need to consider growing my salad in my kitchen window. I just need to find the proper planter.
Even though I have the old Crocs to make a hanging planter suggested by Real Simple magazine, I just don’t think I could enjoy lettuce growing in a stinky, old shoe. The hunt continues for a suitable planter; but I’ll probably be out there in a short sleeve t-shirt soon.
