container size for leaf lettuce
Well, my lettuces have been long gone. But I thought I'd try something. Instead of a few plants in a barrel that I can't move out of the heat, I thought I'd try in smaller containers that I could let out in full sun on days in the 70's, move to my partially shaded porch on days in the 80's and inside my french doors on hot days. Just trying to eke out a little greenage for when my tomatoes start kickin in for a few salads. I don't expect them to make it to August doing this but thought I'd give it a try to get "something."
Right now, they're in 3" starter pots. You think that those half gal nursery pots would suffice or should I go with something a bit bigger? I don't want to waste a bunch of potting mix just to have them bolt anyway. But I know too small of a pot will limit them from getting anything large enough to pick.
