#75: Plant a Balcony Garden

December 4, 2007

Last Updated:

My start of a balcony gardenI totally had help with this one! My mom gave me a gorgeous pot full of shade plants and flowers. So no planting required – I just wheeled it out to the balcony. Then, I was given a tree chute, or whatever real gardeners call them. So, I went to Home Depot and bought a planter and dirt (far too many types of dirt in that store, fyi). I also found an orange and purple ornamental pepper plant that I just planted in an IKEA pot that has been sitting empty since last year. Combined with the mini-herb garden my mom also made for me, I think I’m pretty much set! Although, some of these I’ll probably be moving back inside so they don’t die in the colder weather. Maybe I should get one of those containers of grass too. That would be really neat… to be continued… in the spring…

My total plant life collection: aloe vera plant, mini herb garden, ornament pepper tree, some random tree, shade plants.

    I think its really nice for anyone to take interest in their dwelling spaces. Even though we may spend the chunk of our day elsewhere, it matters that our homes echo warmth and a reasonable amount of organization and compartmentalization.
