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?
