fire escape

quickriteJune 19, 2008

My roommate and I want to start a little garden going on our fire escape but we don't have the first clue where to start. It gets about 8 hours of sun a day and the climate here is pretty temperate.

Is this illegal?

Be careful on that fire escape. I just read this book "The Tenth Circle" by Jodi Picoult where this kid falls off a bridge and now I'm all paranoid.

You might want to check your local regulations before starting a garden out there. I'd bet there are city ordinances about keeping them clear.
