Unusual Perspectives

May 22, 2012

This weekend, I carried the dining table out onto the balcony – first because I neaded to build trellises for the beans, and don’t have a tall enough ladder (just a tiny stepladder for the too-high kitchen cabinets), and then because it’s also lovely to eat outside – I could take a couple of pictures from an unusual angle.

Looking down at the garden (most of it, anyway – almost anything that wasn’t covered in table!

On the left side (along the railing) the pots with tomatoes, aubergines and bell peppers, at the back, peas and kohlrabi, the bit of free space in the upper right corner is where the door is, and next to it are a couple of flowers and houseplants on summer holiday.

The pot tower from above (shame on me, I still haven’t translated the post about building the tower into English!)

At the top, Volcanic Sorrel (Oxalis spiralis subsp. vulcanicola) in a hanging pot. The tower is full of oca (which is also an Oxalis species, O. tuberosa.)

Looks like a rather chaotic garden bed, but it’s the railing:

Planter boxes along the inside and outside, and a couple of potted plants temporarily “stored” on top of the wall – I’m planning to sell those Abutilons, but they need to start blooming first, and ideally branch out a bit.

Oh, so much to blog about, and so little time – I can’t keep up!

    I don’t think the railing looks chaotic – it looks delicious!
