Lettuce and swiss chard...and happy happy news!
I'm growing "regular" green romaine lettuce and red romaine - both are growing quite well. I have spotted aphids here and there, but I don't have too many plants so I can manually swipe them away. I think I have spaced them too close though...I probably should transplant some to a different container to promote maximum growth.
I have a second container with lettuce and swiss chard. This was before I realized that swiss chard can get very large if you give them the space.
I think the swiss chard is large enough to withstand a move. But what about container space? Well, I just got some really great news! They have a community garden space available for rent!! I put in a request way back in November and just got a call on Monday! So exciting! I'm not sure where it is yet, so we'll see if everything will work out. If everything goes well, I will have to go buy some starts (fun fun!). I'm so excited!
