This post is getting out a bit late, but last week we returned from Denver…and my lettuce looked like this!
I’m pretty pleased with this considering how long we were away. Many of my other plants weren’t looking as lively.
I was initially thinking they were just water deprived, but I’m coming to believe they may need a bit more nutrients.
So I am turning to you, my readers, in the hopes that you are better in the garden than I. What should I use to fertilize? I’ve been mixing some old cow manure from the fields (we have many free rangers out here) with organic potting soil. This worked wonders for one of my tomato plants.
Since all the plants didn’t respond so enthusiastically, I’m beginning to consider a more balanced store bought organic variety. Any suggestions? I have lettuce, spinach, herbs, tomatoes, and peppers, and they are all growing in containers.
