My Balcony Garden

I am proud of my garden. I've put a lot of work into it. All 15 planters were scavenged from beach combing trips and the soil was scraped off the forest floor using a clam shell. I didn't make my own seeds, unfortunately.

[counter-clockwise: cilantro, carrots, broccoli (?) and lettuce, carrots, planted lettuce(2), tomatoes(2)]

[cilantro, head lettuce, not yet planted, cilantro, lettuce, planted lettuce, lettuce]

I planted cilantro twice unsuccessfully before giving it one more shot. I put it in three planters, hoping one would work. All three worked. Now I have a TON of cilantro. Ideas?

[Red Sails and Romaine lettuce, just-sprouted Oakleaf lettuce, unknown lettuce]

[rainwater collection and compost]

It is amazing what you can find on the beach for free. I am glad you are eating your vegetables, now you need a jerky rack to go with the garden!
