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. That's my tomato plant above and my cucumber plant below.

Both plants are getting huge. Okay, so the cucumbers are probably not the best to have in an apartment garden but remember, I'm not a gardener. I didn't even believe this would work.

I am super excited about the progress and just the fact that they are alive and I could have some fresh vegetables soon. I need to get those grate thingees for both to climb on, too. I'll get that taken of soon.

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