What we’re growing…

The other night, Michelle and I found ourselves at the Rochester Roots office for the first of their Growing Together Urban Agriculture Workshop series. Sarah Scott did a great job in renewing our energy and excitement for gardening and Urban farming as a whole.

We have some pretty lofty goals, but I think they are all within the realm of possibility with a little hard work and dedication to the end product. This weekend I’m planning on ordering some more seeds that I feel that we will need to properly complete our garden and our way of life. I also would like to look into the idea of vertical gardening. This would entail the use of PVC pipes as a vertical set up that should allow for a greater output of green leafy veggies, and fruits such as strawberries. I am planning on making this year the most productive ever..

What we’re growing:

Grape Tomatoes (great for sauce)
Green Zebra Tomatoes
Brandywine Tomatoes
Paste Tomatoes
Striped German Tomatoes
Butternut Squash
New England Pie Pumpkins
Long Island Cheese Pumpkins
Snap Peas
Red Onions
Bulls Blood Beets
Golden Beets
Swiss Chard
Hubbard Squash
Colored Bell Peppers
Collard Greens
Pole Beans
Pok Choi
Thai Basil

I know it seems like a lot, but with the right growing techniques, I’m certain we will have a very successful year…

  1. So exciting! I just put in my similarly lofty seed order this week. I think that urban gardening is such a thrilling challenge – it’s really exciting to get as innovative as possible.
