Roof Top Garden

It's that time of year again, time to get dirty and sow some seeds.
My youngest daughter has started a roof top garden at the local community centre.

We have planted radishes, peas, beans, lettuce, mustard greens, beets, and flowers! Things have already started to sprout and this weekend we spent some time thinning the radishes and replanting some.

When you live in the city you have to take opportunities to be in nature and the roof top garden is a special oasis hidden away from the hundreds of people who pass by daily.

In some large cities in China and Cuba food must be grown in the city because there is no other option. We are looking forward to the farmers markets that will be starting soon! Until then it's the roof for us!
