Gardening Goals

roof deck

I don’t have a lot of ground space for planting.  But I have a roof deck that gets full sun.

I want to plant a lot of new things up there this spring and see what we can do ourselves going forward.

Where (to grow)

Lettuces can grow in most soil types but require the soil to be constantly moist. Partial shade is good for them in mid-summer and they should not be grown again in the same soil for at least 2 years.

Type of Container

Lettuces will grow well in relatively shallow window boxes or pots with loose-leaf varieties continuing to produce leaves even after you cut them if the stems are left in place. Close planting is fine and can prevent weeds from getting a hold.
