I was very happy to find several large galv. tubs tucked in the back of the shed yesterday. My husband has a nasty habit of getting rid of things he 'thinks' we don't need anymore. I was afraid they may have dissapeared since I haven't used them since we moved here. I filled them with some garden soil and mixed in a little blood meal and composted cow. I really hope this works. I planted some spinach and Bibb lett. seeds in two and some romaine and arugula seedlings in the other two. I thought they might be a little safer from our brutal sun through the screens on the porch. I guess I'll find out soon. I have several large pots with herbs out around the grill and they do very well so long as I don't forget to water them. My mint has finally started sending sprouts out the sides of the strawberry pot I planted it in. My hubby likes mojitos and the supermarket always seems to be out of fresh mint when I looking for it.
