Windowsill Salad Garden

1 Comment

lettuce growing in a window box

School holidays and so many hours to fill.  A whopping 8 weeks for us this year which works out at 672 waking hours.

We whiled away a happy hour today planting a windowsill salad garden.  We’re growing round carrots  (Paris Market 5 – Atlas), chard (five colour silverbeet) and lettuce (red “picking” lettuce Granada).

Here’s how we did it:

windowsill vegetable garden - select containers

windowsill vegetable garden - improve drainage

windowsill vegetable garden - sow seeds

windowsill veg garden - cover seed

windowsill vegetable garden - water

windowsill vegetable garden - label

We’ll check the boxes every day and water each time the compost looks like it’s drying out.  It’s fairly warm at the moment so we’re hoping seedlings will appear in the next one to two weeks.
