Not the eating kind- the beginnings of an awesome balcony garden.

Hubby/partner and I got excited at the end of a week of warm weather, in seventies, and began sprouting seeds and setting plants out on the balcony of our one bedroom apartment. Biiiig time fail. Then, we have had two continuous weeks of thirties and forties including snow. We pulled almost everything inside and saved most things.

Squeezing sprouts and plants on the stovetop, of course.
The problem is indoor space and sunlight. We keep everything in the bedroom while we are at work where they sort of get sunlight. When we are home and the sun is down, they are on the kitchen counters where the cats do not go.
Strawberries we bought as small plants. A little blossom!
I will do another post about our sprouting methods because we tried about five ways, some successful and some cumbersome.

Can't wait for summertime veggies and herbs and kitty treats!
