Balcony Garden Grows

My balcony garden with the city looming in the background.

It was a beautiful day today and we accomplished some tasks in our balcony garden: separated the 4 tomato seedlings (cherry & pomodoro) and repotted into slightly bigger pots, erected 2nd trellis on opposite side of balcony door and planted Scarlett Runner Pole Beans in planter for this location, planted some more Morning Glory (to replace what our cats ate), Marigold (some died off), and lettuce seeds (the Romaine never came up and the mixed salad greens made a weak appearance - I think due to being older seeds), sowed new Romaine lettuce seeds and Buttercrunch lettuce seeds, planted some native Columbine in large pot (brown eyed susans & sweet william were in this pot last year but died off - we mistakenly left them out during Winter - we'll take it in this year).

Mesclun mix (above) and Spinach (below) are growing well.

Morning Glories are striving to climb.
