Growing Garden Love


I've always wanted a garden. Mostly I've just always wanted to grow strawberries. My grandma always had strawberries growing in her garden and my other grandma always made sure there were plenty in stock when I would visit as a child. I finally have some sort of space and surprisingly enough time to devote to growing some delicious strawberries and much more. At this point I have two cherry tomato plants, six strawberry plants, two peppermint plants, one mint plant and EIGHT (!!) pepper plants. OH, and I forgot to mention the two cucumber plants I adopted! Ive also got some little baby cilantro's that I started from seeds, not even thinking they would actually grow and to my delight FOUR of them did. Mind you this list doesn't include the five planter boxes I have with regular old annuals and perennials in them. I bit off way more than I can chew and I couldn't be happier. Turns out the side effects of having lots of flowers on the balcony is that I now have a purdy party space and I plan to put it to good use this summer!
 Yay city gardening!
