Does anyone else on Iwaku have a thing for gardening? After not using our balcony for nearly 5 years we decided to do much more than use it as a place to keep a table and old chairs. A little cleaning, a bucket of water and brush, some angry neighbors below who kept their phone literally sitting on the edge and the floor. BAM! Fresh slate! Some earth boxes we got for dirt cheap, couple bags of soil, and seed pods and now we've got a flourishing garden! Some things didn't quite sprout, like lettuce, onions, and some flowers. But that's alright, learned our lesson about how to handle germinating. Now for an excuse to share pictures.
