Greens- lettuce, spinach, chard

Tomatoes

Corn

Peas

Root veggies- beets, carrots, radishes

Yellow squash, pumpkins, cucumbers

Bell peppers and jalapenos

Herbs- sage, dill, thyme, parsley, rosemary, cilantro, oregano

Fruit- blueberries, strawberries, pears, cherries

Flowers- marigolds, zinnias, sunflowers, gladiolus

I feel like I’m forgetting a few things, but that’s the general idea. We have a pretty big garden. To be honest, my boyfriend does most of the work on it. 🙂

This has been a work in progress. SO and I got into this last year.

Currently, we have a jalapeno plant and a tabasco plant that are thriving.

BUT we have tried tomatoes multiple times as well as cilantro, basil, oregano, green onions, etc, etc. Everything dies, though we got a few small tomatoes.

We aren’t giving up, though! At least peppers seem to be easy. We live in FL, so I think the heat is a bit much for the tomatoes.

Ha I JUST took this pic! Today’s harvest, less 3 we gave away…there’s about 30 more going between 3 plants and dozens more flowers coming in.

 

 

 

 

We also have:

Romaine

Arugula

Snap Peas

Tons of herbs including an ungodly amount of basil and mint

Habenero and thai peppers

 

Not bad for a roof in Brooklyn!

Love love love plants! But, sadly my balcony gets part shade during the summer so I cant grow most veggies. I can grow tons and tons of peppers and all kinds of herbs though! Basil is my favorite to grow because its so easy. Botanical Interests has many differenty types of basil and I’m currently growing a purple basil.
