Top deck veggie patch

Seems like this is the week of Before and Afters (ie. I am finally getting my act together in my own garden). Last year, our third-floor deck was a complete embarrassment due to a lack of access to water. This year, after installing a drip-irrigation system and some raised beds, we’re in business.

You can’t see it all in the photo, but I’ve got six heritage tomato plants, zucchini, basil, shiso, cilantro, edamame, purple bush beans, mixed lettuces and some ornamental perennials — and let’s not forget the fig tree. Now it’s such a lovely place to come and sit in the evening; breathing in the heady mix of tomato leaves, basil and fresh soil.
