This is the story of my balcony. One day, I moved into an apartment with a balcony. It was much nicer than the one I had in Japan, so I decided to do lots of things to make it prettier.
The thing is, you see, I really suck at keeping things alive… I’ve managed to kill (so far) – 2 sunflowers and 3 lavender plants.
My one success, however, are the tomato plants a friend gave to me. I got them when they were teeny tiny and now they are huge. So big, I have to keep buying them bigger and bigger pots. I could have sworn I had photos of the tomatoes that are growing on there as well… I guess they’ll have to wait for another post.
While I’m still cocky with my tomato success, I planted some daisies and some other plants that I promptly forgot what they were. I was worried because the packets said to plant them in June but I planted them on the 1st July… Shh… don’t tell the plants!
Lastly I bought some pretty bunting from Accessorize so bring a little British-ness to my balcony. I’m hoping to buy a little table and two chairs to put out there but the noise from the main road outside is pretty noisy so I don’t know if I’ll actually achieve my dream of nice breakfasts outside in the sun.
I just replanted one of the tomato plants since there was 3 in one pot. I had to break a few of the tiny roots to do so, so I hope it’ll survive. I’ll be so upset if they died, too…
Any gardening advice is greatly appreciated!
