The Kitchen Icons Rooftop Garden is already producing gorgeous organic vegetables. Tonight, the broccoli was ripe and plentiful.
Summertime in Minnesota is precious and fresh garden goods are always best. Eating produce within minutes of harvesting is amazing. By the way, our Rooftop Garden is located just above us when we are in the underground kitchen where the AGA is located. Very soon we will be building the Roof Top Grilling Garden with exquisite grilling equipment, like Hestan.
