. . . . . . . and some other stuff too.
The fact that we have to protect plants from nature probably means that we've over-bred them, don't you think?
I imagine so Georges, but then Lettuce, at least the stuff we eat now a days, is pretty much a human creation. Not sure there is exactly such a creature in nature, and if there is it likely is a much to tough bit of foliage as to not really be palatable. Mine is juts doing so well in doors I hate to risk it to our crappy weather and bugs. Mostly the problems is our crappy weather blazing heat and high humidity. The white sidding on the garage also tends to reflect so much light that I managed to burn my 2 bell pepper plants the first sunny day I put them out on the deck. They are back indoors recuperating.
Nice idea growing in the guttering. I've done it for peas before but it would work really well for salads. I might have to do that.
Kev, its the first time I try the gutters but it makes it handy to move them about and keep them out of the bad weather or to much sun.
I have returned home to find that all my plants were first smashed by tropical downpours and then desiccated by subsequent drought. Ah well, guess I'll just have to start over...
Glad to hear you are back home among your family. That was a long spell away from them. I imagine you shall need to spend some time whipping the troops back in to order. To bad about your garden, but I suppose it is easier to grow new plants than a new leg. Did you manage to get some of the peat pucks? If you did not let me know and I'll send you some.
Hi M, your plants look good. My celery arn't doing well right now. It's been pouring rain and the leaves are turning yellow which I think is from to much water and cold weather.
Hi John, yes for now they seem healthy, but I keep a close eye on them and the weather, and I move them under cover if there is a threat of heavy rain or gets to hot. The Lettuce seems happiest in the mud room. It gets plenty of sun light, it is warm and I can closely regulate how much water they get.
