Garden on the roof!

The Earthly Gardener by Bobbi A. Chukran
March 8, 2007

Dear friends,

I realize that some of us don’t have large yards or gardens, and that some of us have to grow our veggies in pots. But perhaps we need to rethink “garden space.” I’ve seen gardens grown on concrete pavement, and I’ve seen gardens grown in old plastic bags. Here’s a neat article about a different kind of garden….roof gardens.

Even if you don’t want to turn your roof into a garden (we couldn’t do that here because our roof is metal and any garden would literally COOK), it might give you some ideas about “gardening outside the box”, so to speak.

Many of my readers are still snowed in. I try to remember that, even as the temps here are already way too hot for this time of year. It was 85 yesterday in Austin, yet we will probably have one more freeze before it’s safe to put out the tomato plants. We always do!

dig it!
