Reading Round Up: Memorial Day Edition

Bucolic Bushwick a Brooklyn Rooftop Container Vegetable Garden

Garden gnomes: Yea or nay? I used to think they were silly, but lately I've been considering getting one for my garden patch. Gnomes infiltrate RHS Chelsea Flower Show from Times Online, England.

I've read countless articles about community gardens, but this is the first I've read about a portable one. Portable garden will grow moveable feasts from The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah.

Another way to garden: straw bales! Swap soil for straw to grow a garden from WRAL, North Carolina.

In L.A. more restaurants are growing gardens. In L.A.'s restaurant gardens, freshness is grown to order from the Los Angeles Times, California.
