How excited was I to find out that we won the #lightupbloordale contest this week!
I submitted two photos with the idea of setting up a mini green house on the balcony!
Excited to be forming plans on how we will be arranging our new set up 🙂
More details soon!
I sat down to go over a few ideas for the balcony plans…
I want to create a unique relaxing space that will allow us to grow fresh organic produce, prepare food, entertain and possibly even practice some yoga!
I have taken a look at few of the local hardware stores, etc as well as online possibilities..
So far I have found that the containment units we had hoped to put in place are just too wide to fit the space we have available. So I’ve taken a look at some alternative options. The units I’ve been looking at can also be moved inside during the cold months, allowing for a longer growing period throughout the year.
1) Tower garden 3 piece starter kit – Efficient, eco friendly, aeroponic towers. Can grow a wide variety of fresh produce, herbs and flowers. Includes timers to save energy use.
2) Weather blankets for towers. Also protects from birds and bugs.
3) A variety of Seed and sprouts + Sprouting kits.
4) A 2 level vermicompost .
