Spring 2014 In Effect

I’m back! And I’m in full swing with my balcony garden. This season I will be reaping bountiful harvests. I have learned greatly from my half-hearted and failed attempt of 2013. Don’t get discouraged, read around and find a solution that can get your garden where you need it to be. Let’s be honest, produce costs can be astronomical.

This season I have peppers, cherry bomb and Chardonnay; tomatoes; zucchini; English cucumbers; lavender; thyme; basil; sweet mint; and cilantro. Well, I hope I have cilantro. Growing the herb from seed is not working so well for me right now.

I have all the fruits in 5 or 3 gallon buckets. The herbs are all in flower pots, and thing a are green all around DC. I already have three flowers on my tomato plant, and there has been no lack of sunshine. I’m excited.

Now that you know what I have growing this season, I will be sure to check back in with progress, tips, and tricks.
