Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I live in a city apartment, but love to have some basic veggies and herbs available to me whenever i want. Taking care of my small container garden really relaxes me and is the best way to "close" a busy working day.

    That's a pretty cool looking planter system. It would look really nice with more of them all full of lush green veggies and herbs. You could actually grow quite a bit on that patio, wait, or is that the roof top. Good Luck!
