    Hi,

    Just popped in to say hello and join the long list of people wanting to produce their own food. I live in Sydney’s inner west and am attempting to turn my concrete balcony into a productive kitchen garden. So far so good. I’ve got rocket on the go and my first lettuces reared their heads today. I share my apartment with two kitty cats, a worm box and a few seedlings. I’m aiming for organic container gardening.

    Hi and good luck with your balcony garden! Have you seen this Jackie French article:

    http://www.smh.com.au/news/environment/selfsufficiency-on-a-balcony/2007/04/23/1177180569548.html

    I’ve got a house but very limited garden space and I found it quite helpful to read.
