Balcony Garden: Day 0

May 10, 2012

Ever since I moved into an apartment with a balcony last summer, I’ve been itching to put a container garden out there.  But last year the growing season was already well underway, so I’ve had to wait impatiently all through the fall, winter, and spring until the danger of frost is gone.

Now.  Now is the time.

From the PBS plant sale I picked up two tomatoes (a cherry and a Roma), two bell pepper plants, one basil, and a hosta.  I there are also some lettuce seeds and a pair of mots who you’ve already met.  The mots are going outside for the season.

From the left: the basil and the bell pepper plants, the tomatoes

This is an east-facing balcony, so it’s iffy whether the tomatoes will make any fruits.  We will have to wait and see.
