An Herb Grows in Brooklyn
Now, I know what you're thinking and you couldn't be more wrong!
Yes, something has sprouted in Brooklyn, but, the type of herbs growing on this roof are of an edible nature.
It turns out, my boyfriend, who has more than notable culinary skills, has decided that retail prices for fresh herbs are just too exorbitant. And so, in pursuit of the perfect seasoning for the perfect dish, on the cheap of course, he has sprouted (pun totally intended) a green-thumb.
Even I, the girly-girl that I am, have grown to love the little bit of green on our shitty little roof that overlooks Williamsburg Industrial Park.
Let's go in for the aerial shot:
Herbs and Veggies:
In the long, rectangular, green planter: Basil (on left), Parsley (on right). Herbal staples, I'm told.
In the small, circular containers: Both green and red jalapenos. Saucy!
In the Terracotta planter: A random vine plant. Excitement.
Ok, so maybe it's more like Martha Stewart gone-ghetto...but, hey, in this life some of us get a patch of earth and some of us get a pot of it.
I say, make the most of your outdoor space. It's always nice to see a bit of green in this concrete jungle, ghetto or not.
