With such nice weather outside, it's a great time for people to garden and take advantage of outdoor activity.  Not to mention, it also helps to provide fresh, nutritious food, too.  At Senior Housing Assistance Group communities - otherwise known as SHAG - rooftop gardens are ideally suited for urban living.  Ciscoe Morris offers tips for planting a p-patch that's perfect for this time of year and explains how people of all ages can enjoy, and be successful, at growing their own p-patch garden.

Meet Ciscoe live in person on Saturday, Aug. 28th at SHAG's Arrowhead Gardens location in West Seattle from 10am-1pm.  He'll be hosting his weekly radio show on-location and be available to meet people for pictures and autographs afterwards.  And while you're there, take a free tour of SHAG's newest location and discover a great community for yourself or someone you know.

Vegetables that Ciscoe recommends for this time of year:

  • Lemon Gem Marigold
  • Wild Italian arugula
  • Lettuce
  • Bunch onion
  • Purple basil
  • Kale
  • Golden beets
  • Spinach
