Join us in helping to decide what edible plant to put down in this old barrel planter. For the past two years we have grown lemon grass in the planter with great success. This year since we were out of town a lot during the past few months and combined with the drought conditions in our area we decided it would be best to scale back our planting this growing season.
Well, mother nature fooled us again and has blessed us with good rainfall every week for the past couple of months. While the prognosticators say we are still in a moderate drought, Falls Lake is only 2 inches below full stage. So now that we are into the last weeks of summer and approaching fall soon we were thinking of what we could plant here and still get something to eat out of it in the next couple of months.
We want your help in deciding what would be a great edible plant to grow in our old barrel planter.
The contest winner gets a choice of one free jar of either my Cajun Chef Ryan’s Cajun Spice Mix or one free jar of my Finger Lickin’ Rub Spice Mix.
- The selected plant must be able to produce edible portions, meaning you can cook parts of the plant or eat parts of the plant in raw form.
- It must be a plant that can grow with moderate sunlight. The planter is located on the south east facing corner of the house and gets about 6-8 hours of indirect and 4-6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Remember the daylight is getting shorter now so the hours of available sunlight are diminishing.
