I haven't made a garden update for 2 months! Time has been flying and I didn't realize it has been so long! See the last one here: Urban Garden update
Here's a wide angle view of the front balcony, there are green beans, snap peas, peppers, green onions and some mystery melons (maybe watermelon and squash, we had some badly labeled seeds!)
For reference here is how it looked two months ago:
I haven't done much other than water it and pull a few mystery weeds that popped up.
In the back we have tomatoes, both upright and hanging upside down, potatoes, brocoli, more peppers and ginger.
The back garden hasn't given any veg yet but things are looking healthy, I have noticed that the upside down tomatoes are much smaller than the upright ones but that may be due to the smaller containers. I am curious to see what grows in the back as it's more shady.
Also a few mushrooms have popped up:
We have been consistently harvesting green onions and basil (not pictured, it's in the window and I forgot) and have started harvesting green beans and snap peas!
I think we are probably growing under quite poor conditions, let's consider this a stress test! We aren't doing anything special with the PH of the soil or using any fertilizer. I feel if we can have success on these balconies it will be a nice motivator for when we can eventually have some land and a proper garden :)
