The Balcony Container Garden in its Infancy

I just moved my container garden outside to the balcony. I transferred several cherry tomato, heirloom tomato, arugula and butter crunch lettuce starts to bigger containers. The basil seems to be growing--but rather slowly, actually. The fragile starts grow a little bit each day, and hopefully they keep growing and thrive.

I swallowed my pride and bought a few little herb plants: sage, thyme and basil. I've already dried the thyme and sprinkled it on salads. It is so amazingly delicious. I can not wait for sun-ripened tomatoes!

As far as sugar goes, I'm trying to locate a tea I used to drink that was called Sugar Balance or something like that. It helped to stave off sugar cravings. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Pink box?

Tea that helps curb sugs? Oooooh. I wanna try. Is this the tea you speak of?

Hey Farty Girl! That's the one! It's been a while since I've stocked this tea, but it is such a delight to curb those cravings. This tea is amazing.

Cool garden you're starting. And hey - what's the deal with this tea? Curbs cravings just by drinking it? Magic!
