Rooftop Gardening 2015!
It's DOUBLED in size since I bought it, too! We are REALLY excited about that!
A few things we won't be doing this year on our Rooftop is tomatoes...they didn't do well at all last year. We did a few different kinds of peppers and we still might try and do some this year but the yield wasn't too high last season. Maybe this year we will have better luck!
One of our Basil Plants made it thru the whole winter and we had it in our production room. We might take that outside again. In the meantime we purchased another starter!
I hope to introduce something new each week. If I do I will let you know!
We got quite a bit of rain over the weekend so some of the area farmers and markets already have corn nearly ready! And Strawberry season is near, too!
One of the plants is flowering! I have been reading up on Chive Flowers lately and might try to start using them in dishes, too!
It was a slow start this spring but I'm getting super excited about the potential of the Rooftop and Container Gardens once again this year!

Congratulations on your gardening success! There is nothing like clipping your own fresh herbs! And Rhubarb yum!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I agree - the herbs are amazing! I hope I have good luck with the rhubarb, too!Delete
Oh that's nice!ReplyDelete
This past weekend, I gave the BF a lot of veggies from our garden; greens, broccoli, onions and sage. I would have given him fennel; however, he said he really does not like how it tastes.
Your broccoli is already - ready - already!? teehee! WOW! Yeah...we tried Broccoli last year and it got HUGE but never produced a head of Broccoli on it! Same with the Cauliflower. I've heard that about fennel...Dale isn't fond of it either...I actually think it disagrees with him from what we've found...I like it tho!Delete
That is awesome on the garden, so fun! Great progress! We're slowly getting our backyard garden going too.ReplyDelete
I've been thinking about you guys and the drought issues you are going thru! Are you smackdab in the middle of it? What are you growing this year?Delete
