GOING GREEN here in NYC!!!

Hey everybody...
I just couldn't resist. I love to plant flowers and this spring I am planting veggies...well tomatoes. I love them and I am excited to see how they turn out. If all goes well with them, then I will venture out to other veggies.

As you know, I live in NYC in an apartment, so I don't have a garden that I am sure you all may have, so, I have to make due with what I have. My terrace is pretty big. It allows me to put 6 window boxes along the railing, but I choose to have them along the floor so that when the flowers grow, they will fall over the railing. I am also growing Rosemary, Basil, & Curly Leaf Parsely and they are growing soooo well. Here are some pics of GREEN THUMB Kimba....LOL!....it's all in line with GOING GREEN!
Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by!

wow they are growing so nice.
Great job and i love the idea of them on the floor, i would be afraid they would fall off the patio if i put them on the railing lol
anyway, I hope your tomatoes turn out ok

Wow, Kimberlina, great job!!! Everything looks wonderful. I now feel inspired to grow a few things on my windowsill. This is very impressive.

Christina....
You HAVE to grow some herbs. I bought the BONNIE plants...check out their website at www.bonnieplants.com. The herbs/plants come in this biodegradable pots that you literally tear off the bottom to expose the roots and then stick it straight in the dirt. So easy!!! Just get you some Miracle Grow Dirt for Flowers and Vegetables and a $2 pot and you are set!!!

Let me know if you grow anything!
