Re: [roofdeck] Primer on Starting Seeds - files on site

Hello Rooftop Gardeners, 

Two things:

1)  Anyone have experience using the "Mittleider Gardening Method"?  I have taken the plunge, purchased the course (available at  Seems to take a certain amount of guesswork out of organic vegetable gardening.  I'm tired of putting so much work into gardening with sporadic results.  This approach seems straight forward and sensible. Curious if anyone has heard of it or tried it?

2)  Anyone have a Japanese style rooftop garden? Is this group primarily geared to urban farming, or is there also an interest in landscape/aesthetic gardens?  If your interest is outdoor living, I create natural stone column fountains, light them with LEDs... They are ideal if you want to maximize the rooftop ambiance with a small footprint visual focal point.

My Best,

Robert Wertz
