A tree isn't really what you think of when you think of container gardening on an apartment balcony, but when I saw that Lowe's was giving away free trees, I thought it sounded like fun! I suppose it's not really free when you have to buy a pot to put it in, but I'm justifying it since I wanted another wooden container for the balcony anyway! =)
We made a family morning of it by picking up the tree and supplies, then going out for doughnuts!
When we came home Benjamin and Joanna helped me plant it.
