Photos from the balcony garden

How did I survive those 10 or so years without a balcony or garden? By spending a lot of time in my parents' garden and having my aquariums filled with an ridiculous amount of plants, I suppose. Seriously though, now I can't imagine going back to living without an opportunity to grow my own edibles and flowers.

rusty red tagetes marigolds Ah, such pretties. I think these marigolds are the first plants I've grown from seeds to flowering plants. So easy, so satisfying.


green pea pod My first balcony-grown pea pod! It ain't summer without fresh peas.


striped red and orange tomato A funky striped tomato! I don't know what was up with this one, but it tasted just fine. Didn't kill us either.


a balcony full of plants And here's an overview of about half of the balcony. Had I been smart I would have cleaned away the tools and such under the table before taking the photo. Oh well.

That's a beautiful photo of your little paradise :) The marigolds are gorgeous and I had a giggle with your funky tomato!

Ohhhh! Looks like you have a "green thumb" as we say it! Beautiful! I'm more the plant killer I fear ...
