A happier balcony for vegetables to thrive on I cannot imagine. Warm north-facing sunlight all day, cool harbour breezes and a view (if they could see) to die for.
With the unseasonally warm weather continuing in Sydney I've potted some more vegetables and herbs.
There are some wonderful new varieties of miniature vegetables available at nurseries these days. These are a perfect solution for small-space gardening. The purple leafed seedlings are baby beetroot and the green fern-like leaves are baby carrots.
I've used some traditional terracotta pots to plant some garden staples - continental parsley and common mint. It's important to keep mint in a separate pot as it can run riot.
