In March we were contacted by a writer who was working on an article for the NY Post about Urban Gardens. The article coincided with the announcement of an enormous 100,000 sq ft rooftop farm developed by Bright Farms in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. They are hoping to produce 1 million lbs. of produce every year. Stiff competition! Anyways, here's images of the article. Read it on their website.

June has already begun and we are still busy planting crops. You can see only a few of the boxes have been opened up on the left.
Farmer No. 1 has put up bamboo trellis structures for the Avocado Squash and cucumbers to climb. We started all of these from seed and transplanted them a few weeks ago. Looks like they'll make it.
