My Urban Garden


About six weeks ago I decided to take advantage of all the sun my balcony gets by planting some herbs and buying some plants to spruce up the place. The plants will probably arrive a month before I move out but the herbs and flowers are making their mark!

After my Ikea trip last month I planted some flowers and herbs that are finally starting to grow! I think I'll finally be using my basil and cilantro by the end of June! I also planted tomatoes but they just started to grow and chives that are beginning to sprout as well. I'm really excited for the lavender to keep on growing though because we want to make our own lavender infused soap because it's one of my favorite scents.

I'm excited to see how much my herbs grow and to hopefully have some tomatoes soon. Our next thought was to get some berries planted so I'm going to find something nice and long to put those in. I've been looking at tons of websites to get tips and ideas so I'm going to link them below. They are my go-tos and the ones I keep checking out to get some gardening inspiration.

I can't wait to share more pics of the progress. It's be unseasonably cold these last few weeks but at the hint of sun everything pretty much goes into overdrive. I'm crossing my fingers in hopes that the sun keeps on shining from here on out!
