Joyful Hermit’s Daily Tip
Save Big Money...by growing dark, leafy greens such as kale, beets, Mescule, Romaine, and French Sorrel in garden pots. You can re-seed frequently, and by having the large pots placed near your dwelling, the greens will grow earlier in spring and later into the fall, being cool-weather growers by nature. Use your own fresh greens in your very own batches of Green Glory, saving shopping and getting the freshest greens possible. Try growing your own cucumbers, as well, from pots. So what if the vines tumble over and out? Vegetables grown in planters are quite beautiful! You really do save money, especially as some of the greens re-seed and also re-grow if the leaves are clipped rather than pulled by the roots.
