Want to grow some salad greens without the commitment of a whole garden? Cool weather veggies like lettuces and spinach are easy to start indoors (cabbage too!) especially if you get them started in these clever containers!
Add a fresh coat of paint to old wooden drawers or leave each as is. Line the drawers with plastic and add a layer of gravel for drainage. Fill with a few inches of potting mix and plant early seedlings inside.
Once the days start to warm up, you can take the drawers outside. Set them on the porch or patio where they can get enough sun and water them regularly...planted early enough, you'll even have time to put in another crop before the weather heats up too much!
