My gardening friends are generally blissful at this time of the year ~ ordering rose bushes and planning their herb gardens. I have often lamented that living in a 500-sq. foot studio, I can not share in their excitement. Until now. I recently proposed to my condo "green" committee the idea of container gardening on the roof. Well, they loved it, and tapped me to head the initiative. We'll keep it simple at first ~ reusing terracotta pots and planters usually filled with petunias and scraggly looking shrubs. Then, if the project catches on, incorporating larger containers into a redesign of the roof landscape.
To be honest, I have no idea what I am doing, but if they can make The High Line work, I think a few pots on the roof will do just fine. I would love to know if any of you are involved in similar projects.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
