Actually I have fabricated iron stand for containers on outer side of my balcony walls in L shape. width is about 2 feet and length is say 20+feet on one wall and 6+ feet on other side.. Similarly extended my window grills to accommodate few plants I will try to post actual photos today evening.
That will be great. I like the building of the boxes, stands, etc as much as growing the plants.

4 the image is recent addition (rather encroachment- it's my brother's terrace) to my garden-around 200sft.  I will be planting some tomatoes, peppers and few other plants there. Making bed for some leafy greens. Work in progress!

WOW!!! You have done a great job utilizing your limited space. I bet when all your plants fill out with leaves and fruits that your balcony looks like an oasis in the sky from the ground.

Is that a waterfall in the background or is the light playing tricks?

You mentioned maybe not being able to use/grow your pumpkin seeds?
I had a limited garden space a few years back and one thing I tried with pumpkins was a trellis. It worked reasonably well. 

It looks like you have some metal bracing available, perhaps you could try trellising a pumpkin near one of your metal railings? You might want to support the fruit (pumpkin) with cloth tied to the trellis once it is large enough to fit in the palm of your hand (swaddle it in a sling). However, I've known other gardeners that do not sling or swaddle their pumpkins and the vine grows strong enough to support the weight of a 20lb pumpkin. Wow!

Beautiful work, Avinash! Lovely garden.

Thanks Mbroman!
Yes! I will be trying pumpkin/squash on trellis-in that additional place of about 200 sft photographed above. I have collected bamboo poles and overall setup is in progress. Will update accordingly

Avinash, You have been very creative and successful growing on the third floor. I even see a cantaloupe (melon).

There is just something about a volunteer plant that makes me want to let it grow. I mean, it did most of the hard work already. thus my 120+ pumpkin sprouts/seedlings I just put in seed trays. Razz
