I know what you're thinking. No, I didn't build another garden bed....but I will next week. Two, as a matter of fact. No, this is something else entirely.
My neighbor came over a few weeks ago enquiring if I would help him with a garden. I made him some lettuce and cabbage starts and called yesterday to say they were ready to go in the ground. Problem was, he never built his garden, so in my garden they went. Thinning seedlings is one thing, but these were bonified plants by this time and I couldn't just toss them.
I had one of my 3x3 boxes that I was saving for an early squash plant, so I threw them in there and I'll start the squash inside and transplant it later.
I didn't transplant the cabbage as I don't have room for it to mature before they'd have to come out, but I haven't thrown the plants out, either. I'm thinking to go dig up a spot in the vacant lot across the street and just see how they do in the bare ground.
So, I have one more lettuce bed. I wish there was some other way to preserve the lettuce harvest as come a few more weeks I'm going to be swimming in lettuce. I'll give as much to my neighbor as he can take, but there's still going to be more. An overly plentiful harvest is a good problem to have.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
