Spring is showering new growth on all the plants in the garden! I couldn't even find space to fit the photos of the cress in this post, let alone growing space on my balcony. Most everything else seems to be doubling in size each week, if they haven't already finished growing.

Spring is an unstoppable force in the garden. The things that flower won't stop flowering. The things that produce food aren't producing food currently - the tomatoes haven't blossomed, the squash refuse to grow taller, and the cress has gone to seed. Still, there's plenty of new plants in the garden, and plenty of greenery to enjoy every morning!

Spring is finally taking off in the garden! The plants are all starting to enjoy the warmth and growing daylight, and the calmer winds are letting them keep their large leaves safe. I can't wait for all the tasty plants growing on my balcony to be ready to eat - except the Cress, which is unstoppable. I probably managed to plant just a bit too much! Also featured are sunflower, hummingbirds, squash, and more!

This week has been a lovely week for the plants. They're all showing some signs of new life (except the Ginkgo, which has started to worry me). The plants that have already sprouted are chugging along, growing to greater and greater size. There aren't many new leaves on any of the plants, but the existing ones are getting larger by the day. I'm looking forward to many tasty plants on the balcony!
