Green Stuff on my soil
September 15, 2009 3:19pm CST
Hey all. I've been doing a container garden on my porch. I'm growing veggies (mostly varieties of greens/lettuce). Well, I'm starting to notice some spots where the soil seems to be turning green. I'm wondering what this is. Is it safe? Can I eat the veggies grown in this soil. Can I reuse the soil? Thanks.

It's probably moss or maybe a fungus, but either way, as long as it's not on the vegetables, they should be safe. You may be overwatering or the soil may not be getting enough direct sunshine. Try withholding water and setting the plants where they can get several hours of sun and see if that makes a difference.
