Balcony Garden continued...


I think they look a little sad, and I sure hope they survive transplanting...we've had such cool, gray, damp weather, I didn't dare try them outside till today (you're missing the tomato plant that's hanging up above...I didn't realize how bad this shot was). We're due for more cool, rainy stuff beginning tomorrow...so everything may rot. ;(

This is the planter that will rotate lettuces and mesclun mix from seed - right now it's mostly radishes and that clump of chives there. I'll add in whatever else I can think of later...

All total there are two red grape tomato plants, two Sungold yellow cherry tomato plants, an Anaheim pepper, a Poblano pepper, 4 basil plants, parsley, chives, thyme, cilantro, catnip, lemon balm, and geraniums. No. I don't eat geraniums. ;)

Left on my kitchen windowsill is a lovely rosemary plant. It's doing so well there, and I use it so much, I decided to pot it inside. This is my attempt at eating at least some salads locally for the Eat Local Challenge. I sure hope everything perks up. And I've put tomato cages on my list...poor babies need help!

It will be another week before I can plant the garden here in south east Michigan. At the Flower Days festival today, I saw about six different kinds of basil - that's more than I knew existed.

they also look at little sad when first planted but just wait! i envy your garden, apartment living in san franncisco certainly doesn't allow for it!

It's so nice that you are enjoying creating your balcony garden! Sounds like you have a nice variety of plants and herbs!

I've been afraid to do anything because the nights still are a little cold here.

Hmmm, how many years have I thought of doing something like this? Well, maybe this year ;)
