Hi, everyone -
Had a GREAT time this past Sunday, visiting Rooftop Farms in Greenpoint.
Really enjoyed meeting those of you who were there, also.
Peter, how cool is it that for a short time, anyway, we lived within a short block of each other in Montreal? Many moons ago, that is, LOL!
Special thanks to Arlene and Gordon, who were kind enough to show us their respective rooftop gardens. Most impressive!!!
Lana and I had a WONDERFUL time, and can't wait for the group's next meetup.
Peter, if you recall, I did suggest a visit to the NY Botanical Garden at some point, but forgot to mention the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, which is also supposed to be quite beautiful.
I was also wondering: since the visit to Rooftop Farm was a short-notice affair, do you want to plan a return trip there? Apparently, their last day of the season will be on November 22nd, and Lana and I plan on going. In fact, we also plan to drop off our bagged leaves and kitchen compostables.��
And last but by no means least, really enjoyed meeting you, Kathy and Frances - the warmth of your personalities was absolutely charming!
P.S. Gordon, It's a bit too late right now, but I will upload the photos tom'w that I took on Sunday afternoon. (Sorry, Arlene, I completely forgot that we had a camera in the car, when we came to visit your garden.)
