We are blessed to have a huge lot with a very big vegetable garden. There is a lot of area to work with and I am able to switch up experimental newbies with my old standbys. But, I am always looking for clever ideas and new ways to try growing vegetables, flowers and fruits.
I was skimming one of my favorite blogs, Keeper of the Home, and came upon this ingenius idea. The “gutter lettuce” growth method takes repurposed household gutters (or another item with a similar shape/purpose) and uses the side of a shed/building/house to grow lettuce. The gutters are installed at a slight angle to allow for water run-off and a sunny or part-shade location would work perfect. Lettuce needs very little root room, so a shallow tray like gutters is a great growing method. I also think that edible landscape is an awesome way to go when it comes to landcaping and is such a unique option, beautiful and functional. Hey, Jacob, can you say “honey do list project”!?!?
