Container Series: Don’t Pitch It, Eat It!
| Amanda Thomsen
  
>> Published Date: 6/30/2017
 
Don’t pitch those leftover veggie starts once prime time is over. Stick them in a container (or heck, an old bushel basket!) with some annuals and everyone gets a chance at a do-over. Farm-to-table is a hot trend in food right now. Why stop there? This container is adorable enough for the back patio and productive enough for the kitchen.

INGREDIENTS
1 Lobularia Lavender Stream
2 Petunia Night Sky
1 Rapunzel Tomato
2 Verbena Lanai Blue
4 lettuce plants (Wildfire mix)
1 Red Iresine
1 corn plant
1 Carolina Reaper Pepper

I kept the annuals in the purple family to pull together the mishmash of vegetables. The corn was a leftover from the Chicago Flower and Garden Show in March. GP
