It's going to be a cloudy day here in Brooklyn and a respite from the heat, however brief, will be most welcome for the fire escape salad bar. If these greens were growing in traditional drain hole planters instead of sub-irrigated planters (SIPs) I would need to be here all day, every day. That is why we have wilted plants all over the city. Other than retirees, who has time to be a plant nanny?
