Room with a View

Our balcony garden is starting to fill in nicely. I chose a cooler palette for the window boxes this year: 'black heart' sweet potato vines, purple ageratum, miniature yellow petunias and and the one boxwood shrub that survived my winter garden experiment.

I added a few more edibles too: kale, red mustard, frisé, strawberries, 'white currant' cherry tomatoes and cucumber. The cucumber is by far the most entertaining to watch. It's taking over the balcony railing and is already bearing dozens of small prickly cucumber buds.


  1. wow, they've grown soooo much in just 2 weeks! I can't wait to get home and eat breakfast and dinner out there with you. Just what the doc ordered after this long trip :)

  2. Looks beautiful! How nice and healthy it all looks!

  3. Wow, it looks even better than last year! It's gonna end up huge by the end of the summer :)
