This was the beginning of my roof top garden in early spring.
And i recycled a bamboo room divider to make it safe for my children.
I used recycled yogurt,coffee containers as pots to plant my seeds.
i used organic soil and an organic fertilizer called BioLive (www.downtoearthdistributors.com).
It is a blend of fish bone meal and beneficial bacteria and micorrhizal fungi to stimulate rooting,plant vigor and consistent growth.
I notice that the morning glories attract beneficial insects like bees and i loved observing them!
But i also got other insect and i found out about this caterpillar and i discover it was from the moth called sphinx…that caterpillar ate all my tomatoes…!
So i had to cut a branch of tomatoe to remove the caterpillar because it was holding so tight!
I put it in an other garden next to my house.
More pictures of my flowers now.
With my Calendula i did a homemade ointment by simply dipping my fresh harvested flowers in extra virgin olive oil.
I got the seeds of wild cosmos at a workshop about butterfly gardening in the Bronx.
I really enjoy my roof top garden this year and would like to do better next year because i got mildiou
on my tomatoes ,white flies on my cucumbers.
If you never try to grow your own food it’s never to late to try.
I did it with my neighbour so ask a friend,family or anybody to help you do a roof top garden.
It’s fun and relaxing!
