Gardening thoughts

While the strawberry plants start pushing through in the pots on the balcony, I start wondering what I should plant this year. I'm quite indecisive at the moment, but I think I will definitely want to grow some tomatoes, as they have been quite successful on the balcony in previous years. Obviously I hope that the strawberries will actually make it through and there will be some small early strawberry crops. Similar to last year, I think I'll pass on the courgettes, as pretty as the flowers are, but the plants easily take over the whole balcony.

I would also like to grow more edible flowers this year. They are nice for the visiting bees and pretty in dish presentations and to look at.

But what else...? What are your gardening plans and would you have any tips or ideas for me? I guess I'll need to get started soon and also tidy up the balcony more, the glass windows should be cleaned the first thing.

On the picture there's a bit of inspiration from the previous years.
