I finally got my balcony garden started! A pot of arugula (will transition to kale), repotted my Dianthus, put three different mint starts in a ContainMint Area, oregano and thyme get their own pots, and repotted the very sad strawberry from my previous landlord's garden that has been languishing in a yogurt container for almost a year.

Still to go: regrowing garlic and green onion, poppies, calendula, more perennial herb seeds.


Got some cilantro and basil started today, as the last thing I'll do before my surgery. I harvested a bunch of arugula that wanted to bolt; there is one flower each on the tomato and pepper; the calendulas are coming along; five of my walking onion bulbils did in fact sprout and are eagerly putting on inches.
