It's been a week now since I started the veggies on the back porch in pots or containers. (this was Saturday)
Had some success with the lettuce well let's say half the lettuce. I planted one side in seeds that I knew were pretty fresh and the other side with seeds I have had for many years. The empty space, that were the oldest did not germinate
That's OK I'll just reseeded. Which I had already.
The basil and the radishes all came up and are looking good.
If I can keep out the critter that keeps coming on the porch and digging in my pots.
I had purchased some spray animal repellent that I'm going to try tonight. I'm going to spray the pots and see if that helps.
I have already put out a live trap and caught one raccoon which I relocated already. And I will put the live trap out again just in case it is a raccoon and not a possum.
Other than that everything seems to be working out very well. So far I have planted seeds of lettuce, radish, kohlrabi, swiss chard, kale, onions, scallions, garlic, zucchini along with herbs basil, parsley and chives. Also transplanted tomato eggplant and the herbs oregano, thyme, sage, peppermint and borage.
I think that the tubs that are spray-painted turned out very well.
I even got a little creative on this pot.
