I've lived in the same apartment complex for almost 7 years now. About a year and half ago, I moved to a downstairs apartment. There has been a unused spot on my patio that I've finally made useful.

And it looks like it's all coming together.

There has always been this small planting area on my patio. I don't know if a previous tenant made it or the complex did but it's been empty since I moved in. I finally made use of it and planted some bell pepper, tomato and cucumber seeds.

I going to say, it's coming along pretty good. I should have marked them better so I don't remember what I planted on the left or right side, but I planted tomatoes in the middle and those have started sprouting.

The picture above is of the vegetables I planted on the left side. The picture above that is the tomato plants in the middle. Whatever I planted on the right has not sprouted yet. I'm watering them twice a day.

Hey, look, this is a big accomplishment for a dude with no green thumb whatsoever.
