Growing in my balcony garden

Today’s tomato harvest

We are nearing the end of the gardening season in my part of Sweden. The tomato harvest have been bountiful this year. The photo above picture today’s tomato harvest. I imagine that there will be similar amounts of tomatoes every day until the first frost in 2-3 weeks. I am very happy with this season, the first at a new location. The first year at a new spot is always trial and error to some degree. I will do some things different next year, but overall I am very happy.

This tomato is on its way to becoming salsa πŸ™‚

I only got a couple figs this year, but my tree is very young. I purchased it last year, and expect a better harvest in 1-3 years. I am very grateful that one out of my two fig trees survived moving during freezing temperatures last December.

What are you growing in your garden? This post is a respons to this week’s Sunday Still, temporarily hosted by Natalie, since my friend Terri is busy this week. Please join us here!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. I now reside in the region where I was born: Dalarna, Sweden. I am a mom, a kindergarten teacher, a minimalist and a gardener. Love, Maria

    1. Thank you! It’s a lot of fun πŸ™‚ Not exactly the biggest garden I’ve had, but I am happy with the result, considering I only grow in containers at my balcony. Every new way of gardening is an exciting challenge!

  1. I love your balcony garden! I tried my containers this year but they just didn’t do well at all. Such a bummer because other years everything did great. I think it was the potting soil I bought.

  2. Very impressive! You have done well. We do not have any veggies growing in our garden only flowers. The day lilies are finished and now the pink Japanese anemones are blooming beautifully along with the echinacea and the yellow Rudebeckia. So lots of blooms! We live next to a farmers field with feed corn than it literally 10 feet high. The squirrels steal cobs and carry them onto our lawn.πŸ˜„

      1. WE have had a week of heat advisories here so the garden is suffering a bit even though we have an irrigation system and have been giving extra water with sprinklers. But we will have it cold soon enough so I’m not going to complain!
