Today, I am in Brooklyn, one of the boroughs in New York City. A number of friends and relatives live in the area,and I am visiting them. I am also checking out the post-Sandy recovery of the Red Hook neighborhood in Brooklyn, which I'll blog about later this week.
Today is bright and sunny and about as good, weather wise, as it gets in Brooklyn. Yards are not big in Brooklyn, but it's quite possible to grow some of your own food.
Strawberries, for example, are already blooming.
And rosemary, which can overwinter in Brooklyn, is blooming.
Many people would be surprised at how green Brooklyn can be, and what you can do with limited space.
Next week: Red Hook, one of the neighborhoods impacted by Superstorm Sandy, recovers.
