It has been a HOT summer here in Tennessee. Miserable. Humid. I want to stay indoors in the air conditioning, kind of hot Summer. So I am starting to get excited that Fall is finally almost here.
It is so easy to Find beauty in the Fall.
One of the things I love most about Fall is Fall gardening. I usually just do container gardens on my patio. It’s easy, and provides me with fresh greens throughout the Fall. And I checked out Fall plant and feed and right now is a good time to start planning my Fall container gardens.
I found this great idea on Pinterest for an easy container gardening with salad greens. Greens love cooler weather, so now is a great time to start a “salad” garden and enjoy healthy greens. It’s so simple:
- Start off with Miracle-Gro potting mix, to give your container garden the best soil conditions that will help you grow a lush garden of salad greens.
- Plant your favorite greens.
- Keep soil most (not over-saturated, but moist).
- Many greens are “cut” and come again (leave the roots and keep watering them, and you’ll get another set of greens).
I’m looking forward to salads and other recipes/uses for my greens. Especially Garlicky Greens:
I know… it sounds so delicious! You can find the recipe via the link above.
What’s your favorite Fall vegetable to grow? Do you have some Fall gardening or planting projects planned?
And be sure to “like” the Miracle-Gro Facebook page. You can talk with fellow gardeners and share stories.
