EMPOWERING THE BALCONY

I have two balconies in my house, front balcony on the south side and east balcony.
You all know that I only have a small space remains for gardening.
So... after house reconstruction on 2012, I use all space optimally.
Of course my balconies.

This is my east balcony time by time

November 2013

Now, I make my east balcony more productive.
I put some veggies pots on this space.
This space is full of sun shine in the morning.
So my veggies will grow better here (I hope). 
I still put some ornamental plants here. 
More colorful...

Today....


This is my front (south) balcony.
At the first time, I made my balcony as a 'rose garden', but as a part shady area this space is not favorable for my roses.
Then I put four pots of little fruit trees here.
There are acid orange, acerola, sweet tamarind and dewandaru.
I think this place is better for my fruit trees than my roses.

So... I can enjoy the 'edible beauty'.

  6. Oh yes, I would say you are making the most of that balcony! It's wonderful! I don't have a balcony, but my small fenced-in potager garden serves a similar purpose. Thank you for the inspiration!
