My little concrete garden 2023

We are discussing andplanning on what to sow and the layout for the small space.
If I must have Tigerella tomatoes I need to put that pot in a different spot where I easier can bind it up, but I think I love the Tiny tim tomatoe better, so maybe have two pots for them.

Good idea to start planning! Have you tried growing cucumbers before? I love growing the round yellow cucumbers.

#2 i have not, atleast since I moved in here. Think I had some when I lived in Borås. Only thing I really miss from the time I lived there, my HUGE balcony.

Oh bummer, I do envy those who have huge balconies with plenty of sunlight.

Have you tried growing djungelgurka (mouse melons)? I wonder if they can be grown on a balcony.

That one got my interest. I got some "Äppelgurka" (Cucumis sativus) I might try out

I'm also trying that out this year! But I agree, I saw the Mouse Melon cucumbers on a gardener's TikTok last night and thought they would be perfect to throw into summer salads. I might have to try to grow them this year too.

I think I will skip on the Tigerella tomatoes this year and maybe have two of the Tiny Tim tomato. And since my lime and kalamodin didn`t survive I might put some cucumber up against that wall.

I would like to try lemon and lime outside, but it must be really hard. I tried lemon indoors a few times, but it died as they seem to be very prone to spider mites. I wonder if it needs to be grown a green house, even during the summer? Have you heard of this lemon? I was looking up what a kalamodin citrus was and found it. It looks like monster fingers haha.

They do need a lot f sun and a place that is´nt to windy, So where I had them on this balcony was perfect, the brickwall got a lot of sun and kept them warm and cozy
That one looks like something I would like to have. But the PRICE??

I was trying to grow one from seed but out of the three seedlings I had only one survived and I don't think it will make it. So I just ordered this vinrabarber https://www.wramsskafferi.se/produkt/spangsbjerg-rabarber

It's supposed to be a good one for pies.

And those dwarf fruit trees are so tempting! I thought I would plant some one my lot but I think it would be too tight.

Feels like everything is going much slower this year. At this time las year I had a lot of tomatoes on the Tiny Tim plant, this year i still hasn´t blossomed yet and is very small😥

I have harvested some chives and parsley and the white currants are ready soon.

The rain has truly been miserable this summer 😩 a lot of my plants have been eaten my slugs. Plus I had a few big winter squash and someone stole them all.

I don´t know what to say about this summer, well I guess I have next summer to look forward too. Hopefully it will be better.
