Saving money on a balcony

Here's another link for you to check out:  Vertical Veg and its account of British gardener Mark's attempt to grow as much food this year on his 6x9' balcony (and windowboxes) as could be grown in a typical 150-square yard London allotment (which we would call a community garden plot).  So far he's well over £600's worth.  The site includes a diary, growing advice, interviews with other small-space gardeners, and resources.

  1. Thanks for the link. I should really think about ways I could go vertical. It's not that I don't have space, it's just that all my sun is concentrated in one little area.

  2. Sounds like a plan, Wendy. Going vertical is also a great way to showcase your creativity.
