Balcony gardening isn't for the weak! Hauling the dirt and containers up stairs and through your living room takes a bit of commitment. Yesterday I picked and ate this lovely tomato all by myself, because thats how I hauled all this stuff up here...by myself!
In the background of this photo are the broccoli and carrots I was told by a master gardner I could "never grow" on a balcony. Well mister, while you are worrying away about your plant eating pests and small mammals, my balcony is free of everything but sunshine! So EAT IT! Ok, maybe a little harsh. But just to rub it in...I grew them organically!
While inspecting the fruits of my labor (I actually prefer labour...like blonde vs. blond) I noticed that Axel is getting a few freckles on his nose. I asked him to show them to me so I could take a picture, when it occurred to me that he hasn't actually heard the word freckle! He thought for sure they were in his mouth! How incredible it is to actually teach things to a child for the first time!
