My first attempts are container gardening on my balcony.

A little too hot and a little too windy

Mother nature was not kind to my plants this week. High temperatures coupled with a few rather windy days has meant a few setbacks for my garden.

The tomato plant blew over, but at least the soil was so dry from the heat that nothing spilled out of the container.

My strawberries and lettuces were completely sucked dry of moisture. The lettuces are recovering, but the strawberries are having a harder time.

I rearranged the plants to try and protect them from the wind, which also freed up some space on my balcony. Does this mean it is time for more plants?

The good news is that my seedlings continue to do well, with the first hints of the spinach and bean plants emerging this week. The cucumbers and broccoli continue to grow, and small peppers have emerged on my pepper plant.

Not sure if this is the spinach or the beans!

Unfortunately, the blueberry’s soil continues to refuse to change pH. I am kind of lost as to what to do next with this one.
