Beginner Balcony Food Gardening: Beans, Peppers, Scallions, Melons, More ...

My new gardening adventure: growing food on my balcony!

Love the video! Excited to hear how everything is looking as the weather warms up. We've had so much rain here on the east coast- I'm worried our container plants are overly stressed from too much water! Have you been getting soaked in your area as well?

Happy gardening :)

I sympathize. Ohio should just be famous for raining! I used to live on the east coast. Part of me misses a lot.

We tend to have a lot of rain here in general. After my husband and I sowed our veggie garden beds in the backyard, a few hours later we got way too much rain. I thought my seeds would all have dislodged. Luckily most of them seemed to have kept their places and germinated.

My balcony pots are doing good, but my little grass plants never seem to dry out enough. I just don't want them to get rot.

We almost got to 32 F degrees the other night. Half of my morning glories on the balcony got crisped. So now I think I have to resow to replace the crispy ones. Everything else is okay.

Happy Gardening to you too :D
