Rooftop Sundeck and Garden!

We have been busy building a deck using scrap shingle pallets we acquired locally for free! Since these pictures were taken we finished the garden beds and filled them with 8-10 inches of potting soil. This will not only be a fantastic place to grow vegetables and protect them from deer and many other trouble makers. But it will also be an additional layer of insulation on approximately half the roof. With the deck shading the rest of the steel and being a breezy, sunny place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors with a commanding view over the property, we are quite pleased with how it has turned out so far. Next to do is build the railings and continue to expand the Victory Garden!

Some things we've planted so far:

Blueberries, cauliflower, various peppers, tomatoes, onions, scallions, strawberries, plus more!
