Lettuce on the Door

Lettuce and Spinach growing well on the door in milk cartons. This year seems to be doing much better for the spinach in their new cooler location sandwiched between the interior door and the exterior storm door. Here they are protected from too much cold and wind, but still getting their light and coolness.

Previously the spinach all bolted or get very scrawny and leggy. The only problem is that due to the inner door being blocked from behind by a cupboard, the door does not open all the way, and when I am going through the door, I sometimes inadvertently bump or scrape off the leaves that are hanging out as I pass. I go gently around them now. Though, the picking is easy! Just open the door and grab a few leaves,  so convenient! This will do until I get the greenhouse up and running. Trying to make use of every window and door sun space I have.
