I had to get out my wood burner so I could make drain holes in the bottom of the salad containers. Some I just put other containers under or the lids to catch the drained water. I only had one of those nice planter box bottoms that they fit on. The others I have are too skinny. The cardboard box has some of the plastic containers I saved all year long.
Here is how crazy about gardening I am, this is my kitchen today. The peat moss is in the big blue rolling trash can. The square tub usually lives on a nice rolling cart at a nice height and an angle so easy to work with the potting soil..
Keryn aren't you blessed. Nasty here again snowed a little last night only 33 here today. Teens tonight and single digits the rest of the week. Snow again by Sun. GRRRRRRRR! I HATE WINTER! Never got my greenhouse done yet, need to level the ground and lay bricks. Need to cut a piece off of the wrong part of the other little greenhouse that is inside of the bigger one so I can put the cover on it. Had to duct tape the windows shut to keep the wind out as they were junkily made. GRRRR! I did plant a bunch of salad boxes of seeds 2 days before the new moon, Sat night and I have babies up already in 2 days! LOVE IT! But they are all in the house under lights not sure they will survive a move to the greenhouses or the bugs in here that like to eat my plants. Planted lettuces, red mustard, spinach, greens, forget what all. Oh and bunching onions, love them in everything. My kitchen is a disaster area as when I went to plant my potting soil was frozen so brought everything indoors. Then went to Walmart to find more but they were out. Winco has the one I use so bought the last 2 they had. I mix Earthgro potting soil with peat moss and perlite. Earthgrow doesn't have any of the other junk I don't want in it like chemicals or water beads.
Had my first lot of snow peas in a salad last night, they were young and tender. Hot yesterday 32c or 90f and then today its dropped down to 15c or 60f. Ive lived in this area all my life but I will never get used to the sudden rise and fall in temperature.Its a sea fog even though the seas 30 miles away.
Its all you can do when you are on a step hill, you have to put in many steps and levels to get a flat area to work. I should be a lot fitter than my body lets me be.
My worms live in the compost now too.Your garden is nice like your set up.
Sorry William about my worm story, I know you are a worm lover and collector, I let them live in the compost these days so they can bury down deep and escape the heat.
Looking up hill at the veggie garden, I,m like a little mountain goat , should be fitter than I am. Up and down rock walls all day when I garden.
Cos lettuce, I use the leaves when I need them, no rotting lettuce in the fridge.
I used to have a great worm farm for about 10 years, but about 2 years ago we had a 46c or 120f day and cooked them , and I haven,t bothered to replace them because, it seems to be getting hotter. Oh wow 9f is cold, keep warm Vicky.
