Lettuce Trellis

2 Jul

We’ve had a comment asking for an update on the lettuce trellis, so here it is. We had no luck sprouting any from seed, so we got some starts from the crop swap. We stuck them in the ground on an overcaast day, and since then they’ve grown tremendusly, except something has been selectively eating the red leaf lettuce. All of the blank spots you see were once red lettuces.

Swapping Crops

17 Jun

Went to our first “Crop Swap” today with a load of rainbow chard and beet tops. What a neat idea! Everyone brought things from their gardens, layed it out on a cloth and took what they wanted from the display. There were eggs, seedlings of all types, and even worm compost tea. We came away with 9 baby lettuce plants and a bag of lemons. Looking forward to bringing more chard to next week’s swap. Who knows what we’ll end up with!ImageImage
