Hello!!!! Come visit 44-09 30th Avenue for some delicious fresh juices, smoothies, salads, wraps and everything in between. I cook for people individually depending on how hungry you are!

Hey Astorians, I've got two small sweet pepper plants that I'd love to trade for jalapenos, mint, or tell me! I'm btwn the Broadway and Steinway stops. You can email me at at gmail.

Make sure your containers are deep enough for the plants to root properly

Anybody have tips, tricks or good stories for gardening on a small balcony? Last year I stuck to herbs (basil, cilantro, rosemary, etc.) and had a pretty decent harvest. Thinking of doing some veggies this year (tomatoes are the first thing that came to mind). Any recommendations for a good veggie to grow, say in a 5 gallon bucket, which doesn't need constant attention and tons of sunlight?

@Michelle Ronda Thanks so much! If I can't find them locally, that looks perfect. And that's actually less than I thought they'd be.

Shyaporn, I bought my columnar apple trees at several years back; they may be a little pricey, but the trees are very healthy and this year I expect more apples than last. They are beautiful to look at, the bees love them and the apples were delicious. Here's a link:,default,pd.html

Anyone know someplace that sells Pole Apple Trees? I so want one!

Hi chadwickjames - I'm right around the corner from you on 37th St...I'd love to take the bags off your hands! I'm at at gmail!

I have one potato grow bag and two tomato grow bags with cages. They need a new home. I used them once (two seasons ago) with great success but I don't really have the space on my terrace. Can someone use these? I'm near 36th and B'way. I don't want any money - I just want someone to pick them up and reuse them! :)
