Balcony garden update

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’ve started balcony gardening again after a few years’ break. We moved to a new place in March and now have two balconies for growing vegetables and fruit.

Quite quickly after the move it became apparent that our big balcony is very windy. It’s between big houses and winds from the harbour can reach it. This of course makes the plants more vulnerable, especially when they are in the early growing stages. Therefore we decided to buy two mini greenhouses for the balcony. They had to be connected to each other, as they were also moving in the wind. We haven’t filled the boxes with soil, the plants are in there in their pots.

The greenhouses are currently full of tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, chilli etc. I can’t wait to harvest some of the produce later in the summer. I will keep you updated. Here are some photos from my little balcony garden.

Here the young plants were ready to move to the balcony.

Have a nice Sunday everyone!

  1. I have never seen mini balcony green houses like that before - how impressive - hope your garden is bountiful!

    1. They are quite cute. I was looking for suitable mini greenhouses and found these ones that were quite cheap.

  2. I'm so excited for you and we can compare some growing notes. I have grown on a balcony before, but never one with a cool balcony greenhouse.

    1. I'm excited to see the results too and even nicer to share them with friends!


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
