Hey everyone!

I've posted a few pics elsewhere on the forums but figured I should add to the showcase! 

My gardening space is above ground, on my terrace above the garage. It's a great little space that lets me pursue SFG with a 3x2 bed, with a small lower tier extension, and some containers to supplement.

Angled shot of my containers (started indoors, all from seed) and the SFG behind it.

Side shot. Containers have sweet peppers, cilantro, corn, eggplant, bush container tomatoes (the biggest one has buds now), round carrots, and marigolds, which have started blooming.

From the front. The bed has baby butterhead lettuce in the lower tier and in the main bed, round carrots, cucumbers, a tomatoes I transplanted from one of my containers, basil, corn, and green onions.

Close-up of the baby butterhead lettuce. I mostly conformed to SFG spacing and separation with a couple of exceptions.

Thanks everyone!

I'll be sure to update this thread with any developments! I did end up moving my bird feeder from the corner of my terrace to the middle, right near the garden. The birds weren't finding it before but as soon as I moved it I got two visiting sparrows feeding from it in the span of 20 minutes. Both times it was my 3 year old son who spotted them from the kitchen table. He's like "daddy, I saw a bird come to your bird feeder, look!" Sure enough, he was right! The next time he goes, "look, another bird daddy! Another bird!" The funny thing was that I was more excited than he was, haha.

One of the little guys even hopped down onto the terrace and cleaned up the seed they spilled. What a good helper. Those sparrows sure are adorable. Hope they tell their friends about the free seeds!

Very nice Fiz.  BTW I probably came close to your place today as I drove down highway 407 ETR on my way back to Ottawa.

Thank you both, it's been a fun ride so far. Learning a ton this spring! And TD, if you passed Warden Ave on 407, you were within a few minutes of my place. Very Happy

Another quick update! We had a major thunderstorm with hail and hard rain and the missus and I were on our way home from a wedding, and the first thing I thought of was my little baby tomato fruit! I'm happy to say there were no casualties. Just a tear on a corn plant leaf, but that's about it.

Right after the storm:

Here's the biggest tomato forming so far, and below that are some of their baby brothers and sisters:
