It’s that time of year when the summer annuals in my hanging baskets look a bit bedraggled.
Unfortunately, pansies won’t be available in the local nurseries until the end of September. So that left me wondering what to do in the meantime.
Then I had an idea while trying to fit all the new cool season plants in the garden…why not use lettuce and herbs?!
I planted these about 2 weeks ago and they’ve filled in nicely. We can harvest the lettuces until the pansies arrive – then I’ll switch them out.
They turned out rather cute and edible to boot!
