So - this year we planted a few things in some planters out front, thinking all would be well.
Let me show you how my "Romain Lettuce" is looking:
Now, I'm not positive, but I can't really remember seeing Romain lettuce look like this in the grocery store.
Also, please see my second pot of Romain lettuce, that has now grown a twin:We're attempting to grow cantaloupe for the first time too. Its still a rather small plant, and we were told a great tip from our friends Johnna and Michael: that when (if) we grow cantaloupe to put them in panty hose while they grow to keep bugs and animals from getting to them!
Here is our baby cantaloupe plant so far :)
