Here is the beginning of June, it has already been a few degrees hotter and our urban garden is growing! All plants woke up (ginkgo and horse-chestnut tree are spreading their leaves). Radishes are ready to be eaten and wild strawberries are now forming.

This year I start the association crops (radishes associated with tomatoes, fennel associated with cucumbers, etc.) and the addition of aromatic plants (curry, borage, garlic, basil, etc.). It seems a bit messy but that’s normal.

List of plants growing on the balcony:

  • lovage
  • chive
  • thyme
  • ginkgo
  • horse-chestnut tree
  • oxalis corniculée
    (urban wild urban wild I scraped from a wall, it was so beautiful)
  • chervil
  • curry
  • beet
  • spinach
  • different grasses
  • borage
  • melissa
  • parsley
  • cherry tomatoes (red and yellow)
  • fennel
  • basil
  • cucumbers and gherkins
  • zucchini
  • eggplant
  • lavender
  • rosemary
  • wild strawberries (strawberries + white)
  • coriander
  • garlic and onions
  • raspberry plant (which did not go well in the winter)
    + some young plants of broccolis and chards (I do not know yet if I’ll keep them)

I've launched this blog project (after many others) at the beginning of my university studies in 2009. The goal was to share my bento pictures and recipes with all the friends that were asking for. The time passing by, my posts have changed, they got more diverse. Now that my last year in university has come (soon I'll be a graduate in communication, animation and events organisation), I've decided to pursue this projet a bit more seriously. So here I am ! From now, I'll make you discover my tiny life day to day ! I'm quite a short girl (150cm tall!) and I guess that my low angle vision of the world might be a bit different from the other people. You'll quickly understand that the little things of everyday life make me happy !

Eccentric, you say?

Not at all ... it's much worse than you can imagine!
