Our garden has expanded into 2 long planters and 2 smaller ones. We are growing: 4 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, Japanese eggplants, shishito peppers, sage, thyme, 2 types of basil (regular and “lettuce” basil), and a shiso plant. They are doing quite well and have given our balcony a lush, green look. We love our little garden!
Our first harvest was a lovely little tomato (which we ate with our bun-less burgers):
Currently, there are 2 Japanese eggplants growing very nicely. We may eat them by the end of this week!
Our urban petit jardin overlooking Brooklyn — it’s giving us great joy so far this summer!
