The winter lettuce garden is doing well. I love the planter on wheels that I can move from a hard rain or freezing temperatures.
I had my first picking just the other day. The small lettuce bed will provide a daily side salad for lunch.
I had to give up my vegetable garden years ago, as the only ones enjoying it were the animals that came into the yard day and night.
I miss fresh lettuce and I’m determined to grow some.
The first step was to elevate the lettuce to keep the rabbits out. A tall planter was purchased.
Next, squirrels had to be thwarted from digging by covering the plants with picnic tents.
The tents keep lizards out too.
Finally, the tents had to be tied down so they wouldn’t blow off.
Yes, I shall have lettuce!
