When Life Gives You An Apartment With a Small Balcony…

Make A Salad.

A few months ago, on my small balcony, I started a container garden. I have approximately 12 square feet of growing space. By anyone’s standards that is small, but it is big enough to cultivate salad greens, a couple of tomato plants and a couple of┬áherb plants.

Last weekend was my first salad harvest.container-salad-garden

I picked spinach, Swiss chard, parsley, and 4 varieties of lettuce.

8 cups full!

For dinner that day we had “frozen dinner” manicotti that I simply had to pop in the oven. Of course, we also enjoyed large servings of our beautiful and delicious salad.
