Took a few quick snaps this morning of the Edible Balcony so you could see it in its autumn splendour.
The thai chillies in the foreground and the tomatoes on the back wall have had a second round of flowering and fruiting.
This gorgeous coloured herb in the front is a curly-leafed purple basil – my favourite herb on the balcony – so, so fragrant and pretty to look at.
This is the tiny-leafed Greek basil variety which is quite citrusy. Very easy grower if you’re looking for a basil hit over winter.
Last of the cherry tomatoes. Definitely planting this ‘Tiny Tim’ variety again. Prolific fruiter and very sweet. No fruit fly or pest problems.
The rhubarb is starting to erupt. Haven’t cooked with it yet. Waiting for sufficient stalks to make an apple, rhubarb and glace ginger crumble.
My rocket patch.
the curry leaf tree is enjoying all this direct sunlight
And still a few more tomato flowers emerging
