2011 garden – first recap

25 Feb

Before starting anything in 2011, I checked with my neighbors about taking over a corner of our communal finished roof for the garden, and I was met with excitement. Only 8 units share it, and we all wanted to make the space an enjoyable, relaxing place. They thought a garden would make the rooftop homey. Everyone was on board.

I decided to try the square foot gardening method, which seemed ideal for my small space in a container box. The potting mix they recommend is 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 compost, which I was able to get from a friend who ran a farm.

I started with seedlings inside and then planted them outside after a few weeks. These photos are March – April, 2011. Click to see a larger image.
