My balcony is south-facing and gets very hot during the daylight hours. I have it sectioned off on a Mediterranean area (marked with the Ikea bag garden) and on the opposite side the ‘Canadian’, characterized with an abundance of kale, greens, beans, peas and squash.
The set up:
A grill scavenged from an alley suspends a garden trough (planted with peas, beans, chard and collards) and provides shade for the Kale and mixed greens bellow.
The Mediterranean garden bag: Tomato, eggplant, different varieties of basil, French lavender, pepper, oregano.
