Why Planning is So Important

Great. Got the compost going and the shelves built. Walked down to the Farmers Market at Union Square today to talk to some of the farmers about what I grow on my newly built window garden. To sum it up real quick – nothing.

Yup, that’s right nothing can be grown out there. It gets about two-three hours of indirect sunlight a day on a good day, which doesn’t allow for most vegetables. So the window garden is out of the question.

Great planning on my part.

Back to square one to figure out what if anything can be done…

    What about getting some grow lights to help the vegetables grow?

    They would’ve been great in NYC. Now that I’m in LA, I just sow everything directly outdoors.

    Yeah, I guess in LA sowing is probably better.
