While my balcony "garden" isn't nearly as good as Court's was, it is still enough to supply me with lettuce and greens through the summer and all the herbs I need year-round. I'm also lucky enough to have parents with a big garden where I can grow anything else I want. And the fruits of our labour are finally starting to come up! I definitely do not have a green thumb, and I always find the early days of planting somewhat demoralizing as it always seems to take so long for actual results. When I plant, I want to be eating fresh vegetables the next week. Now, 3 1/2 weeks after first planting, baby greens are nearly ready to eat and pretty soon good (vegetable) times will be here.
