Basketcase

January 29, 2010 at 11:46 am

As a big fan of summer salads, I’ve been enjoying my own salad greens grown literally on the door step!

Although I am lucky enough to have access to some garden space, there’s nothing better than popping out the front door to grab some lettuce or herbs to throw into a meal.  I found some old cane baskets at the recycling centre and have simply lined them with newspaper, filled in with potting mix and some lettuce!  With a flourish, I present you basket grown greens…

Of course, this isn’t limited to your salad greens – I’ve also got a few baskets of mint, chives, lavender, rosemary and even had some broad beans take off.  The baskets make for a cute, cottage-like appearance – but you can of course use garden pots and other random containers to spice up your stoop.   So give it a try – all they need is some sun, water and eating!
