This afternoon once my sugar booger wakes up I'm going to get the stuff to plant lettuce in our big Terra Cotta planter in the back yard. I am tired of paying $5 a week for a tub of lettuce that we usually don't eat all of and goes bad. Yet when we buy the $2.50 bags, it's done in one meal. So this is the solution! And there is nothing more satisfying than sitting down and eating food that you planted, nurtured, and harvested yourself.
I have, for a long long time now, yearned for a garden. Our back yard is bad conditions for one, unfortunately, but maybe one day. Actually...yes...I think I will make that one of my life long goals. The only other life long goal I have is to never pay a cable bill in my life. In other words...never have cable TV. If you know me though, you already knew that about me.
Unfortunately...I cannot seem to keep anything green alive! It's a running joke in our house when I come home with a plant because, sho nuff...it will die in a few weeks. It's so sad, and I don't get it! So I am determined to make this lettuce work. I will sing to the little leaves if that's what I have to do!
I'll keep you posted how it goes!
Do any of you garden/plant your own food?
