Original Post: Lettuce is the Perfect Container Gardening Vegetable
Step 1: I bought a packet of mixed lettuce seeds, a metal colander (I found one at Good Will for less than $2), potting soil, and fertilizer.
Step 2: The original post recommends plastic window screening to line the colander (keeps soil in and lets the water out), which is an excellent idea, but I skipped it and so far, it's been okay. I added the soil to the very top of the colander, sprinkled the seeds, pushed them into the soil, watered thoroughly, and placed on my kitchen table right next to the window.
Step 3: Water daily.
