In 1987 my rooftop garden won the New American Garden Contest 
Special Merit Award from the National Gardening Association. The National Gardening Magazine featured a 6 page article on my container garden.

For 8 years I grew a wide variety of fruits and vegetables such as grapes, corn, apples, tomatoes, cabbages, blackberries, and much more. Everything was grown entirely in containers on the rooftop of my Hollywood apartment building. By the 5th year, my container garden produced over one and a half ton (1500 pounds) per year of organically grown fruits and vegetables.


If your vegetable gardening is limited by insufficient space or an unsuitable area, 
consider the possibility of raising fresh, nutritious, homegrown vegetables in containers.

By using sunny window sills, you can grow a number of herbs.
