A Little Winter Kitchen Lettuce Garden
I decided that to tide me over until I start planting (really only just a few weeks–wee!) I would try doing a little window lettuce and herb mix. I made up a "planter" out of an egg carton lid, and sealed the side latch holes with some folded and taped tin foil:
I filled the canister with damp triple mix with a little extra nitrogen (coffee grinds) since there's some brassicas in my lettuce blends and they suck up lots of nitrogen. I then sprinkled the seeds into their bed and covered then with a sprinkle of more soil. I put them in my south facing kitchen window and will mist them with water every morning.
