About me

I'm Tabby. I'm in Zone 7B and I'm living just outside of Atlanta. I live in a third story apartment, but I'm working on building up some sort of garden anyway on my ~6x10' balcony. My goal is to spend as little as possible on my garden. So I collect seeds from the wild, trade for them, and take cuttings for the most part. All my containers were thrown away by other people.

Current project

Hybrid raspberries, basil, lettuce, catnip, Carolina allspice, 4 o'clocks, butterfly bush, wysteria, blue violets, and maybe cannas. In the next month or so, I will also be acquiring a tea seedling.

Type of gardener


Favorite garden activity

Sipping tea and looking at the progress...

Yes! Recycle, re-purpose those pots. And collecting seeds! Yes! It proves that you don&#x27;t have to live on a farm to raise your own. You rock!
