I finally got a rooftop garden! I didn't find out until June, so I was a bit late starting. Now the kale won't stop and I've harvested the basil once already.
I just started some spinach and chard from seed (for the first time!). It's mid-season, so I've no idea how they will get along. But I love this little "life hack" of re-using old salad containers as mini greenhouses. It keeps the wee seedlings moist, and mostly (fingers crossed) protected from the dreaded slugs.
Has anyone else used this method before? I welcome any comments on starting seeds mid-season like this too!
