It’s alive!

I think our balcony has more greenery than all the sum total of all the other balconies in our apartment complex.  That’s saying something, given the 4-balcony townhouse monstrosities opposite us.

What we’re growing:

  • tomatoes (planted late, but doing well, thanks to worm castings)
  • dwarf Meyer lemon
  • broccoli
  • kale
  • leeks
  • spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Brussels sprout (from the No-Dig workshop run by The Watershed)
  • lettuce mix
  • arugula / rocket
  • dwarf peas (The shoots are delicious in salad)
  • French breakfast radishes (If you plant too close, pluck the extra shoots and throw them in a salad.)
  • strawberries
  • sage
  • parsley
  • cilantro
  • After-dinner mint
  • rosemary
  • basil
  • thyme
  • And some other stuff we had seeds for and decided to throw in the mix…

It’s not quite the same as our Connecticut garden, but here in Sydney, I think we’re doing pretty well.

    🙂 Thanks, Grandma. We’re doing our best. If we ever have a bit of land, you can bet it will be covered with edible plants!
