School Garden Bounty

People often ask me what's in season right now? This picture is a great way to answer that question here in our school garden this summer. We have been having a great summer in the garden this year. Many of our students and staff who have worked hard to keep the garden looking beautiful--through weeding, watering, mulching, planting and general upkeep, are taking their much deserved summer break this week and so we wanted to share with everyone what our garden looks like and what we're enjoying from it right now. Clockwise from the top left you'll see: Italian Rose Beans, Radishes, Banana Peppers, Swiss Chard, Cherry Tomatoes, Purslane, Green Bell Peppers, New Yorker Tomatoes, and Eggplants. And what makes all this fresh produce even better? It was grown right here in Harlem on a humble little rooftop that used to just be our 5th floor terrace!
