Curley leaf parsleyIn September I sowed some curley leaf parsley and it will be ready to harvest soon.

PennyroyalI also sowed many pennyroyal seeds, and everyone seems to have sprouted!

Yellow strawberryThese are Yellow Strawberry plants sowed in September.

White carrotsCarrot can be easily growed in pots, even during winter. I'm growing these white carrots, the Tonda di Parigi variety and a pot of purple carrots.

Bok choiThe bok choi (or tatsoi) sowed in autumn gives me many fresh leaves for salads.

RadishI always grow radishes in the rooftop during autumn and winver.

RhubarbI brought the plants sown in spring (like this rhubarb) on another side of the rooftop.

Just remember to dig the soil from time to time, remove weeds and water only if the rain isn't enough.
