Hello my name is Brian and I am from Long Island New York. I recently bought a condo with my fiancé and had free time on my hands so I decided to start a garden. I have some experience as I grew up with a garden at my parents house. Do to space restrictions I will be growing in pots and 3 large condo garden kits that Home Depot sells I have started to grow cucumber, carrots, sugar baby watermelon, lettuce. It's simple and it's my first go. I started the seeds in a seed starter where they sit currently waiting to sprout. They went in there about a week ago

:wave: Hi Brian, those planters look pretty cool, are they a type of wicking bed? If so they are perfect for a balcony.

Not sure what wicking bed is but I think it's like a "self watering " pot. There is 2 levels on the bottoms the lower one the water sits on and a few inches about that a grated bottom that the dirt sits on and it will slowly absorb the water. There is also a pipe that runs top to bottom that I will use to fill the planter up when it needs more water. There are some YouTube videos on the product if anyone wants to learn more
