I have a small inner city place, equipped with a rather spacially restricted balcony. The latest obsession is filling this space with green delight and this blog is intended to bear witness to my feeble green thumb attempts.

Sometimes the darkness can be truly illuminating
I knew that my late-sown, yellow zucchini was finally starting to grow larger, and I could see the ails of powdery mildew (inevitable after our warm Autumn hail ridden downpour) creeping in, but only when I was floucing around the balcony taking night shots at 10pm did I really see the extent of the damage. White shows up well with flash and the black contrast of might left nothing to the imagination. Milk spray was applied, let's hope it works! I even had to buy full cream milk for the task (I am a skim, lactose free milk girl myself) so now I have to work out a way to use the rest of it up.
