She has always enjoyed watching things grow. As a child, she ate vegetables from her family’s garden supplemented by the fish and game her father brought home. Although she now lives in a bustling urban center, the lure of producing her own food still holds appeal.
With help from Hanselman Landscape, she now grows corn, cucumbers, beans, melons, Zinnias, lavender, herbs, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, and cabbages in irrigated planter boxes–ON HER ROOFTOP!
“When I’m up here with my vegetable plants, it’s hard to believe I’m actually in the city! But anything is possible if you can just find people to carry out what you can imagine,” she smiles.
