Today was a very productive day, and the first full day of work on the DINA Rooftop Garden. We have continued to build planters from old furniture & discarded pallets, and also made supports for our climbing / spreading plants.
We joked about up-cycling, artisanal re-purposing and the aesthetics of “shabby chic”, and I pointed out that as far as shabby chic is concerned, I have been halfway there for most of my life.
We gathered a few more containers and pallets that have been accumulated in the building (thank you Malcolm), re-potted a few plants and started to plan how the garden might look when it starts to bloom next year.
All in all, a very good day and good weather to be gardening.
