Romaine LETTUCE on the deck. Leaf lettuces grow very quickly and in little space. If you succession plant, sowing seeds every week in a few different planters, you'll create a supply of greens that will be ready in a steady stream all summer. Greens like these are also good for sheltered decks or patios that don't get much sun, since lettuce doesn't like a lot of heat and will grow better during the summer in cool shade
Even as summer turns to fall, it's time to think spring. Now into early autumn is the ideal time to plan, plot out, and prep beds and borders for swaths of colorful flowering bulbs. | Photo: GAP Photos
Cut the bottom off a plastic pot to contain invasive plants & bury in the ground. It works great for containing plants that tend to spread, but that I still want to plant in the garden. This also works good for planting a plant in an area that tends to get filled with roots etc. from other plants. I will use a larger pot so that the plant can spread it's roots and grow deeper roots, but keeps other tree roots from choking out the one I planted.
