balcony garden

my new favorite spot is the corner seat on my balcony where I can see just about all there is to see, including my mini balcony garden.

I’m growing some basil, mint, cilantro along with some d e l i c i o u s lettuce and the cutest of strawberries.

of course at the rate I’m producing berries we’re going to have one a week, which doesn’t make for a very good shortcake season, now does it?

I’m hoping to make up for the lack of berries with some home grown tomatoes, which I use in my new favorite breakfast: softboiled eggs and tomatoes. (I had no idea this combo was so amazing) I’ve gotten into the habit of boiling 8-10 eggs (6min, 30 seconds) at the beginning of the week and keeping them peeled and in the fridge so I can just pull them out and have a fresh creamy soft boiled egg whenever I need one. (highly recommend)

 

served with salt and pepper and a twist trader joes every day seasoning blend: delightful. (I use that stuff on everything)

every night, even if I don’t sit out on the balcony, I try to get a photo of the sunset, and every night it does not disappoint.

I’m looking forward to an entire summer of every changing horizons and fresh produce from my balcony garden!

well, that went by fast.

seems like just yesterday it was the beginning of spring, and here we are talking about pumpkins and apples and feeling the chill in the air.

I’ve been working hard getting ready for a holiday craft show (more on that at a later date.) also, walks on the beach, lots of swimming and a few really fun times with some of my favorite people who happen to also be my offspring.

not a bad summer, not bad at all.
