Growing Tomatoes on a Balcony

The thing we missed most when we moved from the country to a city apartment was our home-grown tomatoes. So we planted some on our balcony! Remember they don't have natural drainage, so allow for that and for fertilizer. We put gravel in the pots before adding soil and nutrients (Miracle-gro has a great garden soil that works well for us.) When plants grow taller than your stakes, just tie them to your balcony railing! Enjoy all summer!
