A first-time Garden in the City

Rooftop garden, Brooklyn (New York City).

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The only thing sweeter than watching your own garden grow is watching someone else's. And a first-time garden is always particularly sweet. We grilled some peppers, zuchinni and onion harvested from our community garden plots on the roof this weekend and admired Katie's tomatoes growing in their buckets on the fence, looking out at the city skyline from Brooklyn. This is Katie's first vegetable garden.

Yum. Better yield that we're having here in the ground in the tropic of Virginia.

I'm moving on up to a rooftop garden in the sky.

Tropic of virginia? Famous work by Henry Miller, no doubt. Always hotter down there but you are sure having one long,hot summer. Enjoy your escape Jane. Yes Meems. Nothing at all like a new garden and a new gardener.
