Building a Miniature Lettuce Raised Bed

It is very easy and simple to make a miniature vegetable raised bed.  Things I needed were ice cream sticks, wood glue, seeds, a square container and potting soil, also white sands for ornamental contrast. 



First, I make a layout on paper. Best lay out to ease the making is the same size of paper and container.


 


 
Fill the container with potting soil.














Cut sticks to appropriate size, assemble, and glue. Put on the soil. I sow the seeds on this stage. Please do not put too much seeds on each row or you will have to transplant the seedlings later.

Fill in the wooden stick bed with potting soil to cover seeds. Add white sands on to the outer layer and flush thoroughly. Avoid direct sunlight and water regularly.
You may sow various kind of lettuce on your bed and you will have a nice combination. Have fun with lettuce and beware, it is addictive! :)

    3. Alhamdulillah, merawatnya pun tak sulit, masa itu Hari gunakan container 5 cm krn tak punya yang lebih dalam untuk yang lebarnya cukup untuk buat miniature raised bed. Kalau Kak Mar punya yang lebih dalam lagi boleh lebih baik lagi, :)
      Hari gunakan baja organik seperti masa Hari tanam tomat, potting soilnya pun sama,
