I would never have believed how much lettuce we are getting from 3 Earth Boxes.  The danger is that it will bolt before we can use it.  I’ll be taking several bags on our camping trip, and expect several of the new heads that are growing on cut-off stalks to be ready when we get home.

And I haven’t even started on the romaine.

Little Gem lettuce has small heads that are the perfect size for a salad for two.  Note top left where a head was harvested and is growing a new head.

I have two patio tomatoes in one Earth Box and two bell peppers in another.  They are both loaded.  So I am getting my garden fix this year without even having a garden!

We are planning to leave tomorrow for a week camping on the GA/SC border.  It will be hot and humid, but it will be hot and humid at home and I’d rather be on a big lake than at home.

The lettuce plant in the rear is one that regenerated from a stalk that was harvested earlier.

Plenty of rain is predicted, so the little veggies should be fine while we are gone.

P.S.  Just wanted to add that I have used NO pesticides on these plants.  They are so healthy that they are naturally insect repellent.

The romaine will be ready soon.
