Let it be known first and foremost, I do NOT have a green thumb. Generally it's black. I've killed a cactus...really. But, knowing I was being let go from my job, which cut our income down, I decided to try my hand at a little gardening. So, I got some planters and planted lettuce and watermelon. We had some slight problems with the planters and I thought the bottoms had the stoppers pulled out when they hadn't and we had horrible rain storms. So much water...and so many weeds! I was using the planters to avoid weeds, but I wasn't swift enough for that. Anyway, this is what my watermelon and lettuce looks like now:
If anyone knows if there are weeds in my lettuce, please let me know. I think there is, but I can't tell which are lettuce and which are weeds!
