After a few weeks of warming up, the plants are churning out produce with an explosion of color. There’s nothing like stepping onto the roof and seeing the pops of color among the shades of green.
Once harvested and gathered together, the color palette is quite impressive. Sometimes, the vibrant colors trigger memories, emotions, and even physical responses. Just look at these lively scotch bonnet peppers! They’ll either make you cringe…or drool.
I would like to thank the Bronx Food and Farm Tour for making the Rooftop Farm at Intervale Green a stop on this year’s tour. It was great to meet all of you and I’m happy to see so many people involved in urban agriculture and the greening movement in the Bronx. A special thanks to Ursula and Sara from the New York Botanical Garden and Ray Figueroa from NYC Community Garden Coalition and Friends of Brook Park. Thank you, Ursula, for the nepeta!
Enjoy the color and bounty of the August harvest!
