and since i'm doing pics...
here's my flower garden on the rails of my balcony.
for comparison, same shot of the same plants on April 4th when i planted them.
Nasturnium. You're supposed to be able to eat it.
and here are the tomato plants! The one on the left grew 4 inches the last 2 days, i promise! I watered it Thursday morning and it hadn't reached the horizontal rail yet.
Herbs: chocolate mint, sage, peppermint, garlic chives
more herbs. Rosemary, lemon balm, and a purple basil. and daisies.
