Obtaining a yield

A start on the balcony garden

The balcony garden has been pretty neglected since we moved back to the apartment six months ago.

Aldi planter box

When I saw this planter box advertised by Aldi, I knew it would be just the thing for the end of the balcony. It provides a decent amount of growing space and is raised, allowing a little storage underneath.

The girls and I filled it with potting mix and lots of worm castings from the balcony worm farm.

We planted some seeds that I had in the cupboard – beans, rocket and cress. So far, the only thing sprouting are some pumpkin seeds that must have been in the worm castings!
