The Outsider: Rooftop Farm in Bed-Stuy

A 500-SQUARE-FOOT VEGETABLE GARDEN six stories above Brooklyn is a whole lot of work, but Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader love all of it — even lugging jugs of water up stairs and waking at 6AM to pollinate pumpkin blossoms with Q-tips when necessary — and it provides all the produce they can possibly eat.

Read the whole tale and see lots more photos in The Outsider, my Sunday garden column for Brownstoner.com. You’ll find it right here.
