I inquired about getting a plot in my neighborhood community garden and was told that the waiting list was approximately three years. I declined.
Sadly, I inquired four years ago. Sigh, looks like I blew that one. So, I decided to finally make my first foray into food gardening this summer, on my little, east-facing balcony.
First, I found a pretty aqua coloured pot at work that nobody wanted and brought it home. Next I went back to the Market and checked out food plants that appealed to me. When I found a bunch that I liked and was told that they were “not fussy” about their growing conditions, into my bag they went. A mix of lettuces, greens and herbs.
And here I proudly present my first happy, hopeful experiment in growing my own food.
A first step in the right direction.
