The hardest part of cooking ribs is the waiting. We started seeds for the container garden we are planning, while we waited. This took about the amount of time it took for the ribs to cook. We started two types of corn, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, lavender, and chamomile. We planted the seeds in water jugs, and are starting them outside. The jugs are supposed to act like little greenhouses. I think we live in zone 4, but it could be zone 5. Hard to tell from the maps because we are in the mountains at nearly 8,000’. I have very little gardening experience and this is a new method for me. Wish me luck!
