Balcony vegetable garden, Spring 2014

Last week I went to the gardening centre and they already had small vegetable plants like paprika, aubergine, courgette and tomatoes. I tried to sow these plants in the previous years, but it never really worked. So this year I bought two tomatoplants, two red paprika plants and two aubergine plants.
As you can see there is also a pot with bamboosticks in it, here I sowed runner beans, they always work amazing. In fron of the beans is a pot with two aubergineplants. On the left you see two pots with on tomato plant each and before the Tayberry (the high green one) you can see a pot with two paprikaplants.

The Tayberry I bought a couple of weeks ago, and it has grown already. There are little white flowers and buds. It is doing really well and I cannot wait to see what will happen next.

On the left I have my herbs. I pruned them a bit a few weeks ago, but they have grown a lot since. In the large pot I have Red basil, Thyme and Melissa. In the little pot at the left I have a gorgeous Sage. In the little pot on the right I have a Rosemary, but I fear this one might not survive. I will give it a chance, but I have little hope.

This is what it looks like right now. Amazing, isn'it? I love growing things, even if it is in such a small way.


  1. Your balcony is really coming along with the warmer weather. I always thought growing my own veggies and such would be such a lovely thing, especially when it came to eating them knowing I nurtured them, however I think that will just be wish for me, not an action - I'm not exactly green fingered, never mind my pollen allergies!

    1. I am not very good with these plants, but a lot of it is trial and error, and that is part of the fun I have with it, I think. An allergy might make things difficult, I imagine!

      Kind regards,
