My little tomatoes have raised their little heads through the soil. They are Money Makers seeds that I got from a friend.
But I’m very unsure about them. I think they are going to be a bit small. It is very tempting to start a beefsteak. But that is
- a. too many tomatoes.
- b. too much room.
I only have the balcony. And the balcony only has so much sun. And the best spot for the tomato only has room for one plant. So.
I had been thinking I would have an entirely edible balcony garden this year. No flowers. But then I remembered the damn squirrel.
There is a squirrel that lives on this apartment building. He runs up the sides of the building like it’s a sidewalk. He hangs out on balcony and on the window sills. He ate a couple of tomatoes last year until I finally figured out a cage system that worked.
But I don’t think I could do that the whole balcony. So I think I will sadly give up my brainstorm of a fabulous kitchen garden on the balcony.
