One of the plus sides of living in a place like Florida where there’s warm weather 95% of the year, means that you can pretty much start a garden at any time of the year.
LIving in an apartment however obviously limits me to a container garden, which I am totally fine with as there are a myriad of ways to make a garden on the balcony a dream.
My first attempt at green thumbing includes growing Sweet Basil, Cilantro, Tomatoes, Strawberries and Forget-Me-Nots. And seeing as how all of these plants require starting seeds indoors, I thought this egg carton would be a nifty way to keep them all together, and get these plants-a-growin’.

After a lot of research on the different seeds, I learned that most plants follow the same basic requirements: plenty of sunlight, watering, and general TLC. I will however attempt to fashion some sort of greenhouse contraption, to help the soil retain water by either placing a clear container on top or Saran wrap.
Overall a fun and cute way to spruce up your windowsill and make it more useful.
