Balcony Renovation: planning a garden for next Spring


It's been quite a while since I posted here on my blog. I have to admit that it wasn't easy having to remove everything from our balcony to get it ready for renovations {announced enough in advance}. We were given the chance to enjoy Spring and Summer. That was really nice.

Plants are back inside and believe it or not Geraniums are steady still blooming. Remember this post about making new plants for balcony planters and saving money? Also posted about fertilizing plants on the cheap here.

Some of our herbs are now sitting on windowsills enjoying good light and sun. I also dried some some branches for cooking and other uses.

Our Clematis vines and Bouganvillea are also inside sharing a sunny spot and doing pretty well.

Rambling noises and dust {a lot of cleaning} are in abundance around here these days...all worth it though. We are getting brand new balconies, beautiful new railings, freshly painted. Can't wait to see them finished! New balcony gardening plans are on their way for next Spring.

Take a look at our balcony grown tomato harvest.

Enjoy the last days of Summer!

Balcony grown tomatoes: picking Beef & Cherry beauties.



The harvesting process began. We officially have balcony grown tomatoes! These beauties are from the Cherry and Beef Tomato vines. I have to say that it has been wonderful having the chance to eat fresh tomatoes right at home from our own balcony garden.

The Cherry tomatoes are so sweet that you really want to eat them all at once! The Beef tomatoes...I know that you are probably wondering and thinking that they are not exactly "beef size". Well, they are not...and honestly, a relief to me as I was a little worried about the size the tomato vine would grow into...They are delicious though. This could be the result of the unstable weather and cool Summer we have had here in Toronto this year. Could that be right?

August is here already. Let's see how many more tomatoes we get before the Fall. Growing tomatoes in a balcony has been such an amazing experience...and of course a huge sense of achievement. I would personally do it all over again next season. But would not get a Salsa tomatoes vine...because it did not produce any tomatoes...so far. Want to see the whole process? It all started here back in May, then flowers appeared in June and then the first small tomatoes and big tomatoes.

Love balcony gardening in the city!

Balcony gardening: Cherry tomatoes as they ripen.


Despite the unstable weather pattern here in Toronto, our balcony garden keeps growing nicely. Today I wanted to share a photo of the Cherry Tomato vine fruits as they ripen. Aren't they pretty? We have a rainy week ahead...I heard someone say that when this happens they ripe even faster. Let's see if this is actually true or just a myth.
