Today I perused Bell's Nursery in South Anchorage to find the perfect plants for my balcony garden. I don't have the space and climate conditions of last summer, so I went a little more conservative with my plant choices. On pot contains five herbs: basil, rosemary, oregano, thyme and mint. The second holds a cherry tomato, chives, a bell pepper and a couple snap pea sprouts. We'll see how they fare with 17.5 hours of daylight (yeah) and some Anchorage rain.
