Apartment balcony farmer
A bit about me:
I'm building up an 'edible balcony', mostly herbs but attempting some veggies - anything that will grow in a pot. I'm fairly new to apartment living, and missing my compost heap but enjoying the challenge of a different approach to gardening.

Currently reading:
The Glass Room, by Simon Mawer
Currently listening to:
An indie folk playlist on Spotify.
My latest DIY project:
Knitting an entrelac blanket for my daughter's cats, ostensibly to use up left-over yarn (but actually had to go and buy more wool to get the colour balance right...). Oh, and I'm attempting worm towers in my veggie pots.
How did you find HOMEGROWN.org?

Hi, Pam. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I’m the flock tender here: site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content. I’m so glad you found us! And I *love* the idea of your edible balcony! I hope you’ll turn up plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too, in our member blog, The Stew—starting with photos of your balcony, please, and then continuing on to more about your gardening group, your lamb chops, and your worm towers. Especially the worm towers. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you ever need help finding your way around, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
