Garden update!


Today on MIT news:  "Green-thumbed graduate students create skyline oasis at McCormick"

...a wonderful way to end a great year of gardening.  Some things worked, others didn't, but that's how a garden is.  Not only do plants grow, but so does your knowledge of what works and what doesn't.  It's the perfect engineering challenge; you test variables, you see what works, and you change your growing scheme.  And you get to eat your successful test cases.  Love it.

Someone just forwarded me this picture---we're apparently the most viewed story!  I kind of feel like a celebrity.

You're better than a celebrity - you're growing beets, lettuce and carrots in a rooftop garden. Most impressive! I hope that you'll invite me for a tour and a tasting the next time that I'm in Boston (hint hint!).

Mary Kay, you are hereby officially invited for a Penthouse Garden tour on your next summer stay in Boston. :)
