Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I grew cress seeds once.  I usually forget to water house plants.

I have a not large apartment with a balcony.  Rules of the leasehold prevent me from putting much on the balcony though so in practical terms I only have a very small amount of space in/outside to grow anything.  That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to have a go but I can't see myself doing very well.

I definitely don't have the time (or inclination if I am honest) to get an allotment - the nearest ones I know of are at least 10/15 minutes drive away. I like the idea of growing my own food though.

Check with your local garden club.  In my experience there is always someone who would like help in their garden and would be willing to trade labor (labour? :-) for a 'cut' of the produce.

If you're lucky that person also keeps bees and you can get some honey out of the deal as well.

My former boss had an allotment share, and she was quite successful with her crop in that!
