This year, the Admiral and I decided to split the balcony in half. She's still sleeping so she's in for a bit of a surprise when she wakes up and sees what I've done. Early bird gets the worm, as they say. Here's what I planned out so far (click on each picture for the larger image):
This spot beside the door will be taken up with a new shelving unit. Two shelves each - I'll be filling mine with two more bean plants (making 4...hopefully that will be enough) and a shelf of herbs. Not sure what exactly I'll be growing but for sure basil and thyme. Likely oregano. Maybe just those three - they're the ones I use the most.
I might even have a pot of catnip if we have the room. Having a small balcony bites.
