If you're anything like me, you probably don't have a porch or huge backyard for a fruit and vegetable garden. But chances are that you have a roof, and that's a great place to start an edible gardening project.

Apartment Therapy recently featured the story of Basil Lee. He's a Brooklyn-based architect who has transformed his roof into an "urban escape" where he grows pots of heirloom tomatoes and blueberries, as well as parsley, mint, basil, rosemary and sage. His example shows that it's possible for small-space dwellers to have access to fresh, homegrown food.
