What a great use of unused space, right? Take all the rooftops of the city, and imagine how much you could grow! We visited Brooklyn Grange‘s Queens location – the flagship farm on Northern Blvd – which is just a short distance from our home.

The kids loved searching for mint and other herbs (a challenge the farm stand attendant put them to as soon as they got to the roof). We happened to be there when a little ‘end of the farm apprentice season’ celebration was going on .. and watched chefs put together lunch in a ‘paleo-diet theme’, and Ezra loved studying how a DJ scratches a record.

I’ve been slow to post because our days have been filled with food, folks and fun. Not a bad summer, eh? We visited some friends in Maine who showed us their amazing garden, a backyard teepee, introduced Ezra to geodes, and helped us find fresh seafood (ceviche sushi and lobsta!) in scenic Portland. The much cooler temperatures up north was just an added bonus to an otherwise perfect weekend…

(thank you Hillary, Aaron and Devorah!)
