Starting a Vegetable Garden in Staten Island

Posted on Apr 25 2009 - 9:42pm by Mike Lieberman


So in a matter of two days I’ve greatly expanded this project from a small garden on my fire escape in Manhattan to a large garden in Brooklyn and my parents in Staten Island.

That’s a lot for someone who has zero experience in this, but that’s how I do. When I get involved in something I go full steam ahead.

Now that I have all of these spots, the costs drastically increased. I need to let this sink in, figure out what I am going to grow and how. Also going to take another read through the book and catalog to see what’s reasonable.

The one thing that I know I’m definitely growing a lot of is greens. No doubt on that.
