I was at one of my growers greenhouses last week and saw the cutest little lettuce plants and just had to have some.
So because I am still fairly new to this house I haven't really created a little garden yet so at this point it is all going to be in containers on my back patio. While it is still a little early to plant anything outside like tomatoes or peppers it isn't too early for cool season plants like lettuce.
So I decided to create a salad pot; where I have mixed lettuce plants that can be harvested anytime to create a single serving salad. Which is really perfect for me because anytime that I buy lettuce it goes bad before I even get to finish it.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out. There are four different lettuce plants, each with a different color, habit and leaf shape so it will be beautiful too! Granted when it gets warm I will have to make sure that I keep it as cool as possible in the shade, but I am excited to see how it all turns out.
