It’s the little things that I love the most. My Dad came to the city yesterday and I asked if we can go to home depot (his favorite place) and plant flowers together on my balcony. He said “you know, you don’t need my help- you can do this yourself.” My response “Dad, I like to it when we do it together, it’s the little things that I love so much!”
Obviously he couldn’t resist and we planted my garden together- it was the best day ever! I put my gloves on and got to work…
We planted flowers in hanging planters off my balcony as well as fresh herbs in stand alone planters- rosemary and parsley.
Obviously I have to have fresh basil in my garden.
Planting a garden (especially on your balcony) is a messy project. Make sure you wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Last year when I planted my first balcony garden I forgot to get a lot of tools to help me.
Things you never thought of needing when planting a balcony garden:
- mini shovel
- watering pot
I know the items above sound obvious but when you’re all excited at home depot picking out your flowers, it’s easy to forget!
The flowers and herbs still need to grow, I can’t wait to see my garden in a few weeks when everything is bloomed!
