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
Striped German Tomatoes
New England Pie Pumpkins
Long Island Cheese Pumpkins
Bulls Blood Beets
Colored Bell Peppers
I know it seems like a lot, but with the right growing techniques, I’m certain we will have a very successful year…
