My Little Garden

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.

  1. That’s great! I bet you will end up growing more than you envisage because once an activity like that starts I think it snowballs. I hope it all goes well, I’m sure you’re going to have a lot of fun with it. 🙂

    • Thanks, I’m hoping my garden snowballs. I’m reading a lot about light requirements and growing conditions. i would love to have my little balcony full of food plants!

      • If you follow your instincts I’m sure you’ll end up with a lovely balcony-ful of plants in no time. 🙂
