Been recently into gardening as well. The image of picking succulent fruits and vegetables off your balcony and making a quick salad from them is so tempting.
So I talked my mom out of planting flowers and went to pick up two tomato and a pepper plant. Gonna try grow some chives as well, they're awesome for making dumpling and scrambled eggs :]
Unfortunately my balcony doesn't receive a full day of direct sunlight, so the growth of these will probably be stunted. Hopefully they still produce fruit though @_@"
Also sprouting mung bean sprouts in the kitchen, gonna add them into cold noodles, aka the perfect summer dish.
