Reading Round Up: Little Tokyo Edition
For a Green Thumb, Just Add Water from the Wall Street Journal covers some of the new garden products geared toward gardening newcomers. I find Home Depot's "Farm in a Box" incredibly intriguing. Hopefully they'll display it in a nearby store so I can check it out.
The New York Times talks to several rooftop vegetable gardeners.
The Baltimore Sun in Maryland tells us what to do in the garden after a heavy rain.
In response to a budget shortfall a community in Minnesota asks its residents to adopt some of its municipal flower beds. Wayzata residents pick up gardening duties at city parks from the Star Tribune, Minnesota. I love this idea. I don't know if I could take on the responsibility of a large flower bed, but New York has tons of security bollards disguised as massive concrete planters. If the city ever offered some of those for adoption I would sign up in a heartbeat.
