There’s no time like the present, especially when you have a balcony garden to revitalise. As you can see from the snapshot, I have a lot of work to do, but to be honest, I’m relishing the prospect. When I started Plotz, it was all about urban gardening - green amongst the concrete, veg growing in junk, the gardenless taking back the initiative and breathing life into seemingly barren spaces. The lessons I learned up at Dave are invaluable. I know more about the seasons and pests and rotation than I ever did before. I also know that I can build structures and nurture seedlings above and beyond a few pots and containers.
So now the hard work begins. I figure that the best point is to examine what I have, figure out what I need and make a plan based on somewhere in between the two. For now, I have a lot of junk and dead leaves, but to be honest, that’s what the Ghetto Gardener thrives on! Plus, I have a secret weapon - that green dustbin contains the compost I’ve been nurturing for the last 18 months
