Now here's an all-you-can-eat salad bar worth going to! We've really enjoyed popping out to the backyard to snip herbs from our pots these past few weeks, but, wow, it would be pretty amazing to grow and pick lettuce and other greens out there as well.
Any time kids can be exposed to and involved in growing food is a great opportunity to teach them about our food sources, science, the environment, and being economical. "Want lettuce on your salad, Johnny? Go pick yerself some!"
Having an all-cement yard ourselves, we'd kind of ruled out growing vegetables so we are very interested in making this salad box. You can find all the instructions at Sunset Magazine's website. Be sure to also read How To Grow Veggies in Pots, Edibles in Boxes and How To Grow Veggies in 2-4 Feet.
