Horn of plenty

First of the balcony cropIt's all go on the gardening front! My balcony is overflowing with big tumbling toms, sweet peppers and cayenne peppers. Last year a neighbour helped our street to establish (officially with a bank account and everything) a garden association and our efforts in planting communal food areas and general decorative planting are really taking off. I started growing food on my balcony a few years ago and I've really made some progress. I'm no longer handling young plants with kid gloves. Get 'em in! So it's gale force winds and horizontal rain? Get everything outside to become hardy! I've got lettuces coming out of my ears and I'm eating things I've only heard of on fancy cookery programmes like lovage and chervil. Keep your eyes peeled here for photos and stories of urban gardening in Newhaven and the wonderful things that come from seed.
