Winter Urban Garden: Salad time!
February 8, 2016
Dateline: 2016-01-21 As promised in the last post, this one is all about the fruits (well, technically vegetables) of our garden labor. The lettuce has gotten ripe, very ripe. In fact I suspect that it was allowed to go slightly too long. Some of the leaves were starting to yellow and overall the plants were starting to get unruly. So let the nom begin.
Winter Urban Garden: All the lettuce!

Dateline: 2016-01-10 The holidays have come and gone, but the urban garden is not forgotten. While we were gone for Christmas and New Years, the plants have survived. Fortunately for the green things it’s continued to be a wet winter in San Francisco. Unfortunately for said plants, it’s also been quite cold. We’ve had a few days of frost warnings and several more that were cold, but not quite cold enough for the warnings.
Winter Urban Garden: First checkin

Dateline: 2015-12-07 It’s been about a week and a half since the winter garden was planted and things are looking fairly good. The plants were watered twice in the intervening time and also got a little extra from some much needed rain. There isn’t a ton to report since it’s been such a short amount of time, but nothing is dead (yet). Overall the GreenStalk makes for a tower of nature greenery in an otherwise concrete city. It is a surprisingly awesome sight to behold every time one looks out on the patio.
