Balcony garden FTW

Leave a comment


it’s funny; when I had a third-acre yard, I never gardened. Always hoped to, but the execution never happened out of intimidation. 

But now that we’ve downsized and now have a condo balcony instead of a yard, potted plants, I can do.

Do you know that growing even some of your own food (organically) helps improve air quality, reduces your carbon footprint, reduces you and your children’s risk of cancer (by limiting pesticide exposure), prevents soil erosion from mass-farming, takes good transport trucks off the road, and the list goes on.  

I have five repurposed pots in a variety of deepness, as well as some railing boxes from IKEA. some organic soil and a handful of seed starters later, and I now have a balcony full of pesticide-free sprouts! I’m growing:

🌿 basil

🌿 cilantro

🌿 jalapeños

🌿 sweet pepper

🌿 cherry tomatoes

🌿 flowers

I’ll keep you updated on my goals to compost, as well as whether they start baring fruit! Please send “grow” vibes, as I’m a very “green” apartment Gardner.
