Chicago Rooftop Growing: 2013 Wettest Year Ever, Greens Happy

Wettest year to date in Chicago as of June 6.
Makes greens grow like magic. Even though they're sub-irrigated, their roots are shallow enough to take in all that lovely rainwater. We're eating giant fresh bowls every day dressed with dijon, olive oil, and lemon. Is this why we're so happy and healthy?
I should be seeding more greens. In a traditional Chicago summer you'd never plant now because the heat would cause greens to bolt. But because of our enormous weather swings, we have no real idea what the summer temperatures will be like. Worth the risk...
