Fenton Friday: A Handful of Salad

The rains stopped early this week and we have jumped straight into summer. The little bit of lettuce I had in the plot bolted, except for this measly handful I managed to cut today.

I was able to pick more strawberries this week and today got another quart. The disappointing thing is how many I come across that are rotten and moldy that I have had to throw away.

I also devoted an hour today to just pulling out that damn Canada thistle that seems to sprout immediately wherever I clear some planting space in the plot. I can see this will be a long-running battle for years to come.

One I get a big enough section cleared, in will go my cutting garden seeds finally!

How is your garden growing this week?

About Fenton Friday:
Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 5th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.)

Growing salad in containers means you can start with as much or as little as you like, growing a few varieties amongst other container plants on a patio or dotted around the garden. Here is a short guide on how to create a container salad garden and some varieties best suited to pots.
