This is my weekend project.
Well, in theory it is. I have a flat roof. And I need more garden space. Thus, I am proposing to build myself a rooftop garden.
There are so many things I have to take into consideration here. The amount of weight my roof can hold is definitely one of them. I am finding different soils that are lighter that should work well. I also should probably find out if I legally have to have a railing on my roof. Then I have to decide on just the right plants to grow that are all shallow rooted.
Lettuce would be a good one. And I could do some strawberries out there. I can do more tomatoes in separate pots too. That always works well.
Cucumbers are shallow. I just have to have enough room for them to crawl around.
Anything in particular you'd like to see me grow on my roof? I'm taking requests. I'll be sure to share anything I grow!
