    Timing: The best time to plant is in spring to early summer and even again in late fall.

    “Recycling” the days trash into useful vessels

    What a difference a few days makes. Shhh, had to eat all the Krispy Kreme donuts to put the box to good use!   Oatmeal box, egg crate, toilet rolls, dog food box; etc!

    “Recycling” all in a days work as well!

    The Lettuce and Calabrese Broccoli actually sprouted in 2 days and grew quite fast. I had to use a skewer stick to push roots down further into soil. Tomorrow they’ll be jumping out to the garden by themselves!
