The seeds from the big onion have sprouted and are now about one month old.
I do not grow fruit (yet) on the balcony. Mostly, because that would require trees for which the space is too small. But one may dream, of course.
For all the dreamers, I will start a new series in which I intend to publish photos of inspiring gardens and balconies. Let’s begin with this photo of a pear tree that I took during a short stay in Saxony last weekend. In fact, I am not sure whether it’s the pears or the bench that makes this garden more inviting.
I have already written about days getting shorter and sunlight hours more precious when the summer comes to an end. The balcony on which I am growing plants only gets sunlight in the morning. Therefore, I sometimes prolong the sunny period for some plants like this sage by moving them to the windowsills on the other side of the apartment which are hit by the sun when the balcony is already in the shadow.
