I had discovered poison ivy in my veggie beds last year so I decided this year to put everything in containers. Only instead of using expensive containers I accepted donations of unwanted plastic storage totes..
Worked out pretty good for this season .. considering the weather.. but now I’m exited to expand next year..
Not only am I repurposing storage totes I’m now repurposing old yoga mats for my walkways..
And yes it was cool to be able to constantly rearrange them..
It has giving me lots of great ideas
If I could attach a few photos I would
I mixed in other types of pots and statuary.. mixed flowers in with my fruits and veggies..
I’m seriously considering planting apple trees in large containers..
Can you do an episode like that?
rabbits in my garden. cheap and easy deterrent.
This is excellent for parrot and reptile owners who want to grow a variety of greens for their animals in a small space, can’t share this enough!
Just started a massive container garden for late fall winter. Was going to do lettuce in row containers but I'll save those for something else as this method seems to be more efficient. Very inspired by your content, thanks.
After watching the video, I went and did a pot just like you did. tested to the soil so I know its loose. Hoping it goes well. I will keep you updated if you like.
What I am growing in containers this year? 3 cherry tomato plants ( they love containers) , 2 brandywine tomatoes (not sure they like containers) , three pepper plants, swiss chard, 2 jalepeno peppers plants, lettuce . I plan on growing some carrots here as well.
I just noticed it looked like you had a bunch of ants crawling
As far as pots go, how do you feel about the felt pots?
The fact you didn't say "lettuce talk about it" I'm sorta disappointed
can I use a grow light vs sunlight? issue is we get hail a lot and scared it will damage the plants
going to start mine today
Thanks for the info. I have taken the end off my lettuce and put it in water and have a small little lettuce plant. Yay! Can I pit the into a lot now and follow your same instruction from there?
This is an awesome idea. We were just thinking of doing our lettuce in containers since the cabbage worms already decimated our spring mix that we planted in the raised bed. Thanks for the great video!
How do u premoisten the soil?
thanks for this video...i never grew lettuce before and actually grew my lettuce in a container and was worried that i would have to thin it out and you were right my lettuce looks just like the one you had in the video and am pleased to know that i dont have to thin it out. thanks for the info!
This is such an awesome tip! I'm trying to grow them now and this vid is so helpful. Thank you!
Yes inspired your video has done that. I live in BC Canada and we don't get the luxury of heat and sun for an extended time. I have a large deck on my condo and have decided to grow some edibles instead of all flowers. Last year I grew a tomato plant that went crazy. Well I have done my research and found out there are two different types of tomatoes. I was growing an indeterminate that should have been pruned. This year its all about determinates, some peppers and now thanks to your video some lettuce. Thank you for posting such excellent vids.
What type of fertilizer application would you recommend for growing lettuce this way?
I started my patio container garden about a month ago when we realized that there were grubs possibly in our garden.
To be on the safe side we transferred our seedlings that we're grown indoors into smart pots and some buckets...
So far so good everything is growing my lettuces and radishes are taking off....
Loved the series
It helped soooo much
Well I loved it and I'm definitely gonna try this. Yes this episode inspired me of growing plants . Hope to c more videos from u
