Grow a Garden, No Land Required

While taking a stroll in the no-man’s land between Gowanus and Red Hook in Brooklyn I came across this little marvel of a garden: lettuce, basil, chives, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme were all thriving in a well-tended plot. The back of a pick-up truck is the perfect raised bed — you can follow the sun and take your garden with you on vacation! This garden even included plastic yard decorations: a rhinoceros, cow, giraffe and elephant were grazing happily between the rows of lettuce. From now on, I won’t accept any more complaints by fellow city dwellers about their lack of outdoor garden space. Get a pick-up truck!
