I’ve been wanting fresh vine-ripened tomatoes all year. But, even if we grew “patio tomatoes” (hat tip to our friend Pam who told me these exist!), Marble would get into them and make a mess. le sigh.
Emil, or Genius from this point forward, had the perfect idea. We have a Romeo & Juliet balcony off our dining room. French doors open to a railing with no landing. It will be lovely in the fall when we want to open the windows. While I was at CroKnit on Monday evening, Emil bought a planter made for railings, three pots, three plants, and soil.
With any luck, I’ll have some fresh tomatoes and cayenne peppers (one plant already has one!). Yum!
