This year I have almost zero room to start or grow plants. The balcony I plan to grow on is partly shaded by a giant oak tree. So tomatoes are out of the picture this year. Not a big deal considering there is a farmers market stand every summer about two blocks away from where I live. So this year I’m going to focus on flowers and a couple of herbs I like to cook with. I haven’t really tried very hard to grow flowers before. I did last year but, it was a total after thought. I didn’t pay much attention to them. This year I think it’s about all I’m going to be able to grow. So now I’m in the R&D stage of the game. I have to find out what kind of flowers will do well on my balcony and what types of soils and nutrients they like.
I plan on harvesting some worm castings soon, probably in a couple weeks, so I will have lots of pictures on my blog. Maybe even some video so everyone can see the worms wiggling around.
