Terminuses is ugly, as is lettuces.
We've decided to have a crack at growing vegetables on our balcony. While we can keep a pot of annuals going for a season, and a permanent and very hardy flowering plant, it is not a kind environment to plants. It get sun midsummer until around noon, perhaps 11:00 am this month. It gets very hot in summer with the sun beaming down and heating the surfaces. There is also the cold and buffeting wind blasts after a cool change.
The lettuci were brought as is and they have thrived. We've been plucking away at the five varieties, double planted to make ten. They drink a lot of water and will need daily watering when it is hot.
The other two plants are a cherry tomato variety. They are in a self watering pot that may need filling once a week or less. They have grown and will soon need tying to the frame. I have grown full sized tomatoes before in a pot but it was so long ago, I cannot remember the results. I know I have to pinch the laterals off but I will Google before much longer about tomato in pot growing.
