Vegetable Plant Update 2 2009

Bushwick Rooftop Container Vegetable Garden
As promised, the peppers have joined all the other vegetables in the rooftop garden.

4 orange and 4 yellow bell pepper plants are in the Grow Box self-watering container in the center, the jalapeno is in the 12" container on the right and my 1 red/green bell pepper is in the 12" container on the left.

The tomato plants are doing much better. I guess the black plastic mulch really helped, I see no new signs of phosphorus deficiency. Yay!

  1. I've got to admire someone who gardens on a tarred roof.

  2. Looking really good! Glad to hear the black plastic mulch worked. -Jackie

  3. Thanks for "following" me - looking forward to sharing experiences.

  4. Your peppers look pretty happy. I grew some in a grow box last year on my deck and they did very well into October!

  5. Sub-irrigated planters on a tar roof are a lot better than edible plants growing in a lead mine.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
