What I most dislike about living in the city is not having a garden: not even little tiny one where I could plant herbs. Though our house does have a small balcony, it's too hot in the summer and everything dries up fast. For now, all I have is mint and basil near the kitchen window. But in August I'll be going north and have I'll my fair share of proper gardening.
* I've just discovered this very simple way to have a vertical garden in an apartment.
