Strange summer, this has been. Even so, the garden has been pretty successful this year. I've been eating tomatoes for the past couple of weeks, and this one, picked today -


- came in at 14 ozs.! Not too bad for a container-grown plant. Tastes gooooood too!

PV, those are all just beautiful! You not only have a green thumb, you have an artist's eye- WOW!

I love the lilies, the coleus, the water drops on the hen and chicks- it that a fig? very cool! Each one is prettier than the next-

growing in containers, on a balcony, in the 'sky' is a constant source of encouragement to us all- I can only imagine what you could do with a 'little patch of dirt' hahaha

thanks so much for posting,

RE: August Update

Everything looks great! I love the Lollipop Lillies.

RE: August Update

Argh! I am trying to grow toms in containers as well - with not great success. PVick - what is your secret/procedure?? That picture is mouth-watering!

Anna - I just grow them in earthboxes and follow the instructions. Works for me .......


RE: August Update

PV, you could write a book on balcony gardening.
A 14 oz. tomato, how about that!

Peeked at your other pictures, I didn't think you could possibly out-do your past successes, but you have. Nice work!
