Garden Update! Olive Oil Can Planter
For those who remember my DIY tutorial for turning an olive oil can into a planter, here's how things are shaping up! Organic mesclun greens were planted on February 26th and the photo above was taken today. Not big enough to harvest just yet but I'm looking forward to picking these to make little salads tossed with lemon and of course olive oil!
If you do not have these tender young greens in your garden or planters it is not to late to start them.
We also recently put together these easy DIY teepee garden supports which we are using to for peas — they've been the perfect solution to maximizing our urban space.
Get all the details for this easy project over on 17 Apart. Our limited backyard space is really starting to look like an urban garden with peas (2 varieties), mesclun greens, garlic, beets, spinach, arugula, carrots (2 varieties), onions, broccoli, and leeks.
What have you gotten started in your garden this early in the season?
