I haven't needed to spend any time in the garden except to water every 2 or 3 days. I have been doing some research and drawing up some plans for what I call a Lettuce Garden Cart. I am gonna build it with 2 by 4's(because they are cheap) from Home Depot. My soil will be Mel's Mix(found in All New SFG by Mel Bartholomew)1/3 Vermiculite, 1/3 Peat Moss, 1/3 Compost at 7" deep. I am spending about 15 minutes gathering lettuce each time I harvest it and have to be bent over or kneeling down. That is the reason that I wanted to make this cart for the veggies that I will be visiting frequently. They will be easy to tend and harvest if they are waist high, and if it's designed well, it will be easy to relocate. As soon as it's done I will post a picture of it.
