Psst, we’re going to let you in on a little secret today. We may be surrounded by briny bags most of the time, but occasionally we also like to take breaks for more terrestrial pursuits. And what do you do in Brooklyn when that green thumb begins to itch? Enter the rooftop garden. Louis, our president, designed a fabulously diverse garden at the beginning of the summer, and we’ve been reaping the benefits of fresh produce ever since. For weeks, we’ve been inundated with peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, Kabocha squash and Chinese water spinach. More important for an urban environment, the garden is densely packed, with overhead trellises spanning between the walls to maximize the amount of space available for growing vines.
Although the autumn wind has now blown away the muggy days of summer, we’re still crossing our fingers for a few more late ripening tomatoes before winter sets in. Here’s to a bountiful harvest season in your community!
