Rain Barrels for the Roof!
May has been beautiful in Vancouver, so far. I have dug out my flip-flops and cotton skirts, and have stowed my Hunters and my raincoat in the closet.
I’m very excited: spring means growing things.
The last few years, I’ve grown things in pots, but this summer, it looks like I might actually get a garden box on the roof. Still a pot, really, just bigger than before!
I applied to the City of Vancouver’s Greenest Cities Initiative and got a grant to purchase four rain barrels for our rooftop garden. I just bought them and installed them last week (and now there hasn’t been any rain!), and now I’m just gonna let Mother Nature do her thing.
And no doubt I’ll be posting garden status updates over the next couple of months.
