Fire Escape Garden

Another apartment, another plant setup. This time on a fire escape, where there's room enough most of the plants I started in my former back patio this spring. Parsley, mint, rosemary, oregano, thyme, sage, basil (which I grew from seed and is just now starting to take off), cosmos (one of my favorite wildflowers) and two tomato plants. I gave away several tomato starts and left behind the lavender.


  1. We have done a full sized garden for 3 years now......needless to say due to the lack of rain we have decided to do everything in buckets next year. Thank you for this lovely post!

  2. i need to figure out how to do this now that i don't have a fire escape - i've always wanted a basil plant.
