Weather has been chilly in the mid-40s to 50s, but today we got a hot 80 something! I'd like a week or two in the 70s, but I'm not complaining.
For harvests, this picture of the lettuce was the only one I could find of what I've harvested. We've had quite a bit of lettuce, and a bunch of basil. Thursday, I anticipate harvesting all of the spinach in preparation for fresh plants, and the need to free up some of the space for things like squash.
The rest of this post is pretty picture heavy. I just wanted to have an actual document of where things are in the balcony garden right now.
Early Tristar strawberries are starting to recover from some of the awful cold nights we got for a while.
I made my very first 5 gallon bucket self watering container today. I don't have all of the necessary tools in our apartment (like a SAW to cut that PVC pipe shorter), but it will work. I followed Jeff's instructions at Our Engineered Garden for the design.
