We do live in a small apartment, but we've got a nice and sunny balcony. It's almost too sunny really and everything that we plant there grows, extremely! Last year we had a 3m sunflower and tomatoes, this year we've got tons of tomatoes and peppers, lavender, succulents and sunflowers.
Finally in August ... when I came back from China, it all started to pay off. Mr.B had taken care of my tomatoes and peppers really well. The sunflowers were in full bloom and since then, I have been harvesting non-stop. There are still tomatoes on my plants and I have been eating maybe 10kg since August (Mr.B doesn't like tomatoes, so it's all for me!!).
Been harvesting one of those bowls every other day.
My balcony - it's not a garden, but my pride and joy!!
