2015_Day 116: Bubblegum, black cherry and pink champagne Sunday

Finally. The failed lettuce is gone from my patio containers, replaced by Black Cherry and Bubblegum Supertunias and Pink Champagne Ruby Grass.

I’m sorry it didn’t work out lettuce, and I apologize if I did something to stunt your growth. 

 But it’s been four months and I can’t wait for you any longer. You were a pretty green and red, but you’re being replaced by beautiful reds and pinks.

I had a few leftover, so I put those in the top tier of the flower bed. Speaking of the flower bed, I also finally moved around some of the cosmos and zinnias in the bottom two tiers (and the pots on each side) to make them more even.

Another dirt-under-the-nails Sunday. If only they could all be this way!

    Looking good!! I love the pinks and reds. I’ve never had any success growing veggies in containers, and I refuse to purchase fertilizer-laced bagged soil from the garden store (which is what you need for containers). I prefer the microbes and wigglers, who seem to do a better job at keeping plants thriving.

      I’m wondering if the compost/dirt mixture wasn’t quite right for the peas and beans. Of course, the lettuce that I transplanted from the pot with the Miracle-Gro soil (where it didn’t do well) seems to be doing okay. Anyway, I’ll keep trying. As long as I get some tomatoes I’ll be happy for awhile!
