Moved Lettuce Babies

IMG_0643After the great moss incident of early 2013, I decided to move the little lettuce’s. This allowed me to take the dirt out of the planter so that I could add a layer of wood chips to the bottom to aid in drainage and also to lighten up the bed. Hugelkultur Anyone? Ok not exactly Hugelkultur, but using the concepts behind it in my container growing.

The Great Moss Incident of 2013

So as you may remember I tried to plant some greens for the winter in late fall. I knew then that it was much to late, but I thought hey why not experiment, otherwise my planters would be just sitting on the porch doing nothing and feeling lonely. Well those little seeds did sprout and they survived till now, they didn’t really get more than a couple of true leaves, but I figured, well when spring hits they will take off. Enter The Moss (insert dramatic music here), I was not paying enough attention, should have mulched. Well anyhow, in the process of trying to lift the moss, I decimated my little sprouts. Oh well, they survived the winter, but not my bull in the china shop approach to moss management.

This year I will get my winter greens in at the right time and I will also mulch!
