One of our first posts featured Sara Gasbarra, lead garden girl of Verdura Chicago, and her rooftop garden at the Hilton Chicago. At that point in time the garden was mostly young and promising seeds and seedlings.
Today, just a few weeks later, Sara says most of the herbs such as basil, mint, tarragon, thyme, rosemary, lemon balm, dill, and marjoram are ready for harvesting and the tomatoes and peppers are in full bloom! She’s expecting cherry tomatoes (sungold, black cherry and sweet million varieties) and chile peppers (serrano, jalapeno and inferno) to bloom soon as well. Yum!
