    Default Uhhh....

    I got a plant kit from a friend of mine for christmas. And I was all excited and stuff so I followed the directions to plant them and was all happy and kept watering and caring for them... Until I realized I over watered my plants. x.x Only one of the pots sprouted anything. And I have two extra pots of moist soil... Any suggestions as to what I could plant in there like would putting cucumber seeds or strawberry seeds (like right after you eat them*) work?

    Lettuce is a great pot plant. 1 head will fill the pot and looks lovely. You can pick the leaves off for your salad and let the plant keep growing. I do this in the winter and we get lots of salads off of it. We grow several different kinds and go around and pick a few leaves off each one to make a lovely salad. I grew stuff like kale before and my son would trade the pots off in his lizards cage. She loved it! We traded off between 3 pots so they'd have time to regrow. Parsley, basil, and other herbs grow good in pots also. I've even grown baby carrots in pots when I lived in an apartment. And green onions too! cucumbers are a vine and also real picky about needing very warm temps so not the best thing for a pot. Radishes would work though! Put you finger in the soil mix and don't water until the first inch is dry. Have fun!

    I like to keep chives growing all the time, I like them better than onions.

    I really never thought about growing carrots in a pot.. What a neat idea, I've had about everything else in my growing pots.
