I also picked some of the lettuce, intending to have it with my lunch. This is the first time I've attempted to grow mesclun and I must admit it wasn't at all what I expected. Maybe I picked it too soon? It wasn't at all as yummy as I thought it would be. That's it alongside my other edible items. From left to right, eggplant, basil, rosemary and cilantro in the same pot, lettuce and strawberries. lettuce on plate
Happy to say that I found some opunta at Lowes for a decent price. I put two up front in the container planter. Not sure what I'm going to do with these other two yet.
The coleus are not as big as I expected they'd be by now but I'm pleased so many of them have grown and continue to thrive. Two of those pots, are meant to be on the front porch steps but a critter or a bird picked away at the coleus until they were all busted up and the caladium rotted so I had to replace all of what was in those pots. I think I'm going to leave them on the back porch until they grow a bit bigger. misc. pots on back porch.
And lastly, here's that old oregano that continues to thrive. Guess I'll pick some soon and put it up. What on earth is oregano used for other than making tomato sauce?
I also found some RoundUp for poison ivy at Walmart for 6 bucks. Going to spray that poison ivy in the side walkway tomorrow when it warms up. The instructions say it should be at least 60 degrees outside and it's damp and rainy today.
