Everything on my roof top garden is dying, surprisingly not because I can’t keep it watered, but because even if I water them the sun just bakes them to death. My cucumbers are not loving it, so what your looking at here is some creative shade. Hey no one ever said you needed to be classy to garden.

Ok so I once again promise to start posting more often. I am starting to feel a little better as long as I keep the decongestants coursing through my veins.
I’d like to take this time to point out how fucking awesome tree houses are the interwebs seems to have blown up with them this week.
First Re-Nest had this awesome article on tree houses. It’s pretty easy to see why one would want such a thing.
Check out their post for more awesome pictures.
Then just on case you don’t have the funds to actually build your own tree house, apartment Therapy, wrote an article about Tree house hotels
But my favorite one is this Hotel in Costa Rica
What Gardener wouldn’t want a house among the trees?

The more we move into full garden weather, the more I simply lust after healthy plants.
See right now my eggplants look something like this:
Instead of this:
So more than anything I want my eggplants to recover once I dust the hell out of the little beetles eating them…..which I haven’t done because I have some sort of I feel crappy illness that hasn’t come to complete fruition.
Also since I have successfully killed my lavender plant for the second time, i am lusting after a new one. How did I mange to kill a pretty hardy plant? Twice? I have no idea….
Also I have noticed now that the heat has picked up I have realized that I really don’t get to enjoy my rooftop garden because is so damn hot all the time. SO now I am lusting after some sort of shade contraption so I can enjoy my garden that I have worked so hard for.
If I could commit ( or I owned my own building ) something semi permanent like this might work.
These shade covers are just plane cool, who wouldn’t lust after you under the design superior shade thing….especially since it cost $1100
