I soak dehydrated tart cherries in various liquors with success -- grand marnier seems to be the favorite for cocktails, especially manhattans. just soak them and keep adding liquor until they plump back up. :)

good luck! I had my first successful balcony garden this year (in washington dc) and it was THE BEST.

sadly, our growing season is winding down now....lucky for you to have such great weather year-round!

suggestion if i may: look into getting a couple types of plant-specific natural fertilizers (as in, one for the leafy ones and one for the fruiting ones, e.g.) -- it'll make a huge difference when container gardening! i'm sure your local gardener can help :D
