Container Gardening Fail
Well, container gardening was one big failure for me.
My lettuce never did produce anything.
This is what my herb garden looks like.
And, the potato container that showed so much promise had an internal problem.
It was full of pockets where potatoes used to be. All I found instead was empty skins.
There was some new green growth with a few miniature potatoes on top, but a few meaning like 3 instead of 300.
I intend to read up on it over the winter and see what I did wrong and what I need to do differently. I will succeed in this next year!
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
You can also become a fan on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I would love to see more of you!
Oh Hallee, this post makes me so sad. :( I get so discouraged when things like this happen…but I always learn from it and have a better garden the next year! Let us know what you figure out on the potato issue, because I was planning to try it next year.
It makes me sad, too.
I will say that all of the foodie blogs that I follow had bad container potato results. Maybe something was in the air this year.
That is sad. I haven’t had much luck with container gardening – with greens (lettuce, spinach – which didn’t grown well in the garden this year either) or even with herbs. My containers this year had marigolds, violas and a volunteer tomato plants.
But gardening is a learning experience. I had some successes and some failures this year and will strive to do better this year. Now I just need to find out when I can harvest my butternut squash…
