Well I don't know if this is glorious madness, or just plain madness. I miss gardening and I miss picking and eating stuff from the plants. I've always managed something. I saw these small pots in Kmart so bought these. I've had both great success and dismal failures with similar pots in the past, but for $12 for the three, I thought I'd give them a go.
The tomato plants supposedly are 8" high. Not very tall. The chillies I can use. For just one person I use quite a bit of chilli. My fruit and vege box always has one about the size of my middle finger and I always use it.
I do have a balcony. It faces north and I also have two wide, northfacing window sills to use as well. The balcony does not get as much full on sun as it did in the winter when the sun was lower. However it gets sun for almost all the day. So I'm optimistic about this little venture. I'll have to get a soluble fertiliser for them, probably a sea weed type.
