Roots in Downtown LA--2015

March 3, 2015

This is my son, Tim’s third winter garden. He grows vegetables and herbs on the roof of his 100 year-old warehouse loft in the Arts District of Downtown LA.

Though he’s grown carrots, radishes and other winter veggies he prefers and does best with the greens–arugula, lettuce, mustard greens, kale. Oh, and for kicks he planted corn in January as you can see in the photos above.

This is how the garden started in late January. Tim was contending with temps in the 80’s and birds.

This was my contribution to his garden but he made it happen in Downtown LA.

Read about his first rooftop garden in 2013 and the how to here.

And here’s last year’s garden. See more pictures from 2014 .

So if Tim can grow vegetables on his rooftop in Downtown LA, think what you could do with your patch of dirt or patio containers.
