The roof farm is empty, but we had drinks up there early yesterday evening anyway, and watched the first of Lee's clouds rolling in from Jersey. Today's is a soft, persistent rain.
I have ordered seed from Botanical Interests in the hopes of late fall leaves. Kale, small and big, Italian and heirloom; wild arugula; red bunching onions, red-leafed mustard, ruby-streaked and frilly green mustard; spicy mesclun mix again - the spring and summer sowing did not work, so we shall see (last fall's were very good); snap peas, broccoli raab, purple-veined spinach and..parsnips!
