Knock knock. Who’s there? Lettuce. Lettuce who?
Lettuce eat lettuce out of a pot instead of a bag!
I made that up all by myself. Can you tell?
I love growing things that are functional, and luckily, I live on the third floor so deer can’t get to my tasties.
It’s not quite complete yet, but take a look at Patio Transformation 2010!
When I first moved into my place, I found myself with a mouse infestation. The first one was cute and S and I named him Cheerio after we trapped him under a clear bowl. We let him go in the nature preserve up the road. After a gnawed through bag of bagels, poop in my kitchen drawers, three bloody mice on glue traps, and once dead mouse falling out of the oven, and I was over my furry friends. It was a traumatic month-long ordeal. And it was all thanks to my downstairs neighbors who has a birdseed feeder on their patio. Also known as a verminseed feeder.
I love birds! But, for obvious reasons, I get the heeby jeebies just thinking about birdseed. I tried out a suet box, and it works just as great! Below is a little cardinal that comes to my suet box each evening. I also get Carolina chickadees, blue jays, and a woodpecker!
Lastly, I simply MUST show you my first lettuce crop!
Come over! I’ll make you a salad!
