I started lettuce and spinach in some pots indoors yesterday. I sowed them, twice, in the vegetable garden last month, but there’s nothing there now. I saw a couple of tiny lettuce leaves before, so I imagine something had a late-summer snack. I fixed the fence this past weekend when mulching (bought more posts, even), but it’s too late.

So I’ve got four small pots in my windows, one for a dwarf romaine lettuce, one for space-saver spinach, and two for Black-Seeded Simpson lettuce. (The second pot is one that I discovered too late has no drainage. I figured I had the soil nice and wet, I might as well give it a try, so I drained the extra water out the top and sowed a few seeds.) I have no idea whether I’ll get anything, but I can hope.
