What’s Happening in Our Rooftop Garden

image

This morning we spent a few minutes taking photos of our garden on the roof.

It’s been a very cold spring but things are starting to grow  up there!

image

We have eggplant. Someone wondered if anyone likes eggplant?

image

This is a new knock-out rosebush that we just planted after loosing last year’s to the rough winter.

Peggy says “I like that rose!”

image

A few sunflowers grew from last year’s plants…

image

and the sweet peas and beans are coming along nicely.

image

We have lots of chamomile this  year. The flowers were closed because it was raining.

image

The gang in room one planted four deck railing containers with geraniums, spike and vinca vine.

image

The lovage is blooming.

image

We grew  cucumber plants from small seeds.

image

Barbara says that “the sweet potatoes are beautiful!”

image

Onions, also grown from seed, are settling in.

image

The tomatoes are growing very slowly.

Tomatoes like hot weather and it’s been cold.

image

The asiatic lilies are almost blooming!

image

image

We’ve had good luck with the zucchini so far.

image

Zach planted these petunias and a little bit of coreopsis that came back from last year.

Soon this planter will be full of blooms!

image

and the gladiolas will be blooming too!

There’s lots more to come! Our gardeners are busy here at Bass River, Inc!
