Here's a few shots of mine rooftop garden this year. It's my first year with the Earthboxes and I tried tomato, onion, peppers, eggplant, zucchini, broccoli, cucumber, strawberry, romaine, and red leaf lettuce.

Sorry, I can't figure out how to load the pictures. This is much different than most forums. My pictures file size is too big for the thread. You can find some more pics on the forum under the Chicago Roof Top Garden thread.

RE: Chicago Roof Earthboxes

the picture showed up fine..
3 rows, a dozen boxes...when was this picture taken?
not much growth on the trees, around the city....
you have a great start on your garden.
I have wanted the Earthboxes for quite a while but haven't gotten there yet.

That is a nice set-up! Do you have any pics from later in the season?
