So, I have officially ventured into the world or rooftop gardening and it's thrilling. It all started with a conversation with my neighbors who revealed that there was no longer a padlock on the door to our roof. I'd been busy planting around the trees in front of my apartment, had approximately three 3'x3' plots to my name. They were all nearly filled with flowers. So, last week I begin rooftop gardening.
Some of the things I learned from my online research were:
Use lightweight plastic pots - or be creative with plastic waste baskets or storage
There are a number of antique quilts at the building I work in. They are used as decoration for a few of the conference rooms. I don't have information about the history of any of them, but wanted to share.
