Recycled garden


Aloe vera, some button flower, cherry tree and cilantro
Welcome to what I like to call my recycled garden! 

I have now had the Aloe Vera so long that I can’t remember what it looked like when I got it. It did start as a small potted plant as did the Cilantro, and Christmas Cactus.

There remaining plants have been grown from seeds. I went through this phase of planting the seeds from the food I ate. So I saved seeds and tried my best to grow them. I do have an Avocado seed planted, however it’s not much to look at right now so no photo.

Lettuce

So you can’t see it in this photo but this is now the third round with lettuce from seed. After this I quit and will move on to something else. The photo to the right is about as large as the lettuce gets and then it just gives up. After talking to a lady at my knitting group she said that she and her husband have a hard time with lettuce. Something about tying it up and forcing it to head.         Ideas?

All my plants are in organic soil, and I use organic fertilizer. No I do not go to a store and buy fertilizer. I use trash! Ha ha, no I don’t compost. Not that I don’t want to but it’s not ideal for apartment life. I use coffee that is not consumed, used coffee ground, used tea leaves, and the water left after steaming vegetables. I have only had one plant complain, Basil. Basil was not a fan of coffee and it went and killed itself … I mean I killed it.

So I will be making two of these in the next week or two and I could use some help. I want to plant edibles or herbs in the top row of both of these, the rest can be whatever.

What do I plant?

One will be in indirect sunlight all the time, but it gets fairly warm. The second one will get more sun and super hot. I would love to hear your suggestions.

Do you have an indoor/outdoor garden? Do you use your wasted items in it?
