    Hi CuteSeamus
    You can go crazy with lettuce, spinach, arugula and other greens. THey are perfect for containers that can be brought in if you have freezing temperatures. Otherwise, they love cold weather.

    You can also plant chives,parsley, cilantro, rosemary, oregano, thyme. Not good basil weather- they are best in summer.

    If you have railings in your balcony, try planting in "Greenbo" planters- they are made to fit on top of the rails. Google "greenbo planters."
