Hi All,

I hope everyone is gearing up for garden season. The last seed exchange made me excited to get started and it always motivates me when I hear about what other people are doing in their gardens so I thought I’d share what’s going on – on my rooftop.

I setup the greenhouse on March 31 and it is currently almost full with:

12 tomato plants – grape, Rutgers, better boy

6 pepper plants – red, orange, jalepeno

Greens: Mesclun, Micro, Pak Choy, Arugala, Butter lettuce, mustard greens, broccoli rabe

Assorted flowers: Gomphrena, lavender, wildflower mix (gotta get bee’s up there)

Beans: Haricot Vert

Watermellon: Golden Midget (Mini 3 lb’ers )

Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherries

Eggplant: AppleGreen variety


On 3/31/13 I planted 150 trays of seeds, most of which are sprouting. I think I will have too many (is that possible?) and will likely give some away.

Here is what I’m growing inside and will be moved to greenhouse asap:

Chili Peppers: Ghost, Scorpion, Birds Eye, ornamental

Watermellon: sugar baby

Cantelope: french

Eggplant: Black Beauty, Japanese, Turkish Round, Striped Toga,

Herbs: Cilantro, Basil, oregano, lemon basil


Tomato: Yellow, super 100’s, yellow pear, Patio princess, Early Treat

Cukes: Mideastern, Kirby, Tiny Mexican Sour Gherkin (look em up )

Flowers: nasturtium, Johnny jump-ups, gomphrena


Share with the group what you are doing....


I hope this motivates you all. I better get a bigger roof…..
