my first homegrown beauties

I am so proud of myself!! :)
You know, I am not blessed with a green thumb. Countless plants have not survived my care. But this spring I gave myself one more chance and planted herbs, flower seeds and a small tomato plant on our balcony.

The result: only the Moroccan mint and rosemary are still alive, but the flowers bloom and - the best - there were five red, firm and lovely tomatoes hanging on my little plant!! So exciting!

 


 



I would love to have a small garden and grow my own tomatoes, cucumbers, salad and berries (just like my grandma)! Hoping that I will be able to join a community garden project once we are in Melbourne!
That would be fantastic!

Anybody having there own garden?

  1. The tomatoes look great and must taste extra delicious! I'd like to grow my own veggies too, but I don't think anything will ever grow under my care :(

  5. Congratulations!! How funny, I was just drafting a post yesterday about this very topic. I too am not blessed with a green thumb. With spring beginning here, I have acquired a couple of small pots in my annual hope to not kill anything!

  6. Aw, yay! Congrats! They're perfect and these images are great! Makes me wish I had my own little tomato plant, too, ha! No garden here in this apartment, but definitely plan on one in the future.
