“Back to basics” trend has started to pick up. Home agriculture has become as popular as pop culture (the gut feeling intensifies if you watch german tvs – growing food in your garden is for some reason extremely popular with germans).

 

So i decided to give it a try and check out my balcony agricultural capacity. I was on the lookout for something easy to grow and that’s how i came up with beans (i am more a tomato fan but tomatoes are really demanding). So that’s the result of about 2 months watering and sunshine:

You need to stretch ropes from the pot as beans loves climbing.

That’s a rewarding feeling.

Not much but it makes great pleasure to eat what you grew be it tiny. From a standard pot, you can get out three batches as the one below

So at the end of the day, growing food on the balcony doesn’t really solve your nutrition needs but i assure you it is a very awesome feeling to watch things grow and then hold what you produced and eventually eat it.
