Planted Greens on this Windy April 3

Got three SIPs planted up on the roof this morning, this one with some beautiful French sorrel from Bountiful Gardens.

Art installed his nifty wiggly-plastic (technical term) windscreen, providing much-needed protection this gusty day as temps shot up to nearly 70 here with cool air not far away.

One of Art's real skills is seeing an item sold for one purpose and using it for another. This washing machine pan keeps large amount of planting-generated potting mix and other detritus off the roof (and thus out of our gutters). 

I use another pan over near where I shovel the mix into the SIPs. Good find.
