apartment gardening

now that i’m in an apartment that gets a lot of light, it occurs to me that i should really get some plants. there’s a couple of large stretches of windows (12' each) that it would be cool to pack with plants. even better if some of them are edible.

i don’t have a great history with plants. at my last apartment, i had one plant on my balcony that eventually died. i didn’t water it often enough because i almost never went out on the balcony, and it probably didn’t get much in the way of light (a combination of the north-facing balcony and the walls on the balcony being just as tall as the plant).

i’ll have to check out the los angeles flower district. the floracle at windowbox.com provided numerous suggestions.
