Early in the Spring, I decided that I wanted to have a container garden on my balcony. Because I work from home, I thought I would really enjoy it, and have plenty of time to work on it.
I ordered some seeds and a seed starter kit from Gurneys. I tried to start probably 10 different vegetables with my kit. My husband hung a grow light for me to help them to sprout faster.
And it worked!
I would say probably 95% of my seeds sprouted, but only about half did well and got big enough to put outside. I have since then bought 2 tomato plants and a bell pepper plant.
I’m really loving my little balcony garden and everything is coming along quite nicely. I can’t wait to have some fresh, home-grown produce this summer!
Here are some pictures of my balcony this week:
I already have one little tomato that I can see! My cucumbers and peppers are flowering so I know fruit is coming soon on those as well! We’ll see how it goes.
