Last night our professor offered us lettuce, cabbage, and broccoli starts. I do not have a garden to plant them in but how could I turn down free plants???
I was conservative I only brought home three types of lettuce and some cabbage... that's not bad right?

Went to Target and bought clear plastic shoe boxes and drilled six holes in the bottom of them thinking they might make good containers or trays for my lettuce. At $1.22 a piece it was worth a shot

Then I simply filled them up with potting soil and stuck in the lettuce and cabbage. I have a feeling the cabbage may get a little bit too big for its britches in the box, but it is worth a shot. Had a few extra cabbage plants so I put them out in the front with a *FREE* sign. I guess we'll see who else likes free plants

. I'm hoping this works and I can have some fresh lettuce and salad all winter long. Anyone else have any luck growing lettuce this way?
