So, I began a new garden this year. I realized the apartment I was living in had a flat roof, and my landlord was okay with me building a garden on it, so I did it! Our building is taller than the surrounding buildings, and there are no tall trees nearby, so my plants get a tonne of sunlight. The only downside is that it gets quite windy. Many of my plants are growing very, very well, but some plants are not doing so hot, and others failed completely. I was wondering whether some of you could give me your thoughts on the failures. If it's something that I can fix, I'd rather not make the same mistake again. Except for the "problem" pictures, most are two weeks old. They've grown a lot in those two weeks!
My peas came in great. My squash are, by and large, doing very well, as are my cucumbers, zucchini and melons. My lettuce is coming in nicely, as are my chives. After a slow start, my asparagus, basil and ground cherries are bulking out well. My tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and corn are also looking good. My gooseberry is doing wonderfully, and my brassica are coming in strong.
The Bad and The Ugly will continue in the next post. I can only upload 8 attachments.
