We have a lovely green communal space in the middle of our apartment complex. We’ve used it for BBQs, tennis and swimming. However, we can’t plant vegies in it the way our friends with backyards can.
We do have a little balcony. It’s a bit bigger than three square metres. A few weeks ago, Damjan and I went to Bunnings and bought two planters, planter hangers, herbs and potting mix.
I’m very happy with our balcony herb garden. It makes our balcony look home-like and alive. We’ve used the chives and thyme for omelettes, and oregano for sauces. The basil is doing really well so maybe we can turn that into pesto.
