Free Container Gardening For Lettuce and Spinach

A friend shared a photo and instructions on Facebook that was pretty cool.

The author had used 40 lb. bags of Miracle Grow Potting Soil. Put it on a metal rack looked sort of like old racks from your oven? on sawhorses (he had used metal but any would work). He poked holes in the underside of the bag, made a big cut square in the bag leaving about 5 inches all the way around, raked the soil by hand, took lettuce seeds and planted. He said to mist lightly at first then water regularly as your lettuce grows. He said cut what you need with scissors and like magic, the next day there is more lettuce growing. I wish I had the link to share but it wasn't available and I don't want to infringe on someones copyrighted material by posting the full instructions but it does give you a idea of how to do this. He had his sitting on a cement patio porch it looked like.
