I’ve had this kooky idea for awhile that instead of planting flowers in my hanging baskets this year that I would use them to grow lettuce in instead. Who knows if it will work, but I set it all up today.
First I gathered my hanging baskets from last year, made sure they were clean and the coconut liner was still in decent condition.
Next, I cut some plastic to fit in the bottom of each one — to keep the water inside and reduce the chance of them getting too dry. I did put some holes in the bottom of the plastic so they can drain.
Here they are all lined and ready for dirt and plants.
I used butter crunch lettuce, red and green leaf lettuces in my baskets.
I also made one with strawberries — yum!
Alright, they are all ready to be hung up on the fence!
Here they are all hung — see all of them all along the back there?
We’ll see what happens, but I’m excited! Anyone try this and have any advice for me?
