“Dear PoP,

The warm weather has me thinking an awful lot about planting a vegetable garden. I live in an apartment with a rooftop deck and am thinking of trying a container garden. I’m wondering if your readers have any advice on where to get supplies. What plants grow well on a roof in DC? Any suggestions for tomato plants that won’t grow wildly out of hand? When’s the best time to start something like this?

Any advice would be helpful. My dad grew tomato plants in the yard when I a kid, but I have no idea what I’m doing now.”

Any roofdeck gardeners out there?
