This is incredibly kind of you, and I will try to return the favor and add my photos to this website as well. This is what I have always enjoyed about the horticultural field, the willingness of those involved to share with others. It is very rare in almost any other occupation or hobby.

I'd be happy to look through my pics for whatever you want. But I'm guessing you want more than table top pics?!

Beds made of rocks, logs, blocks, or even packed dirt?

No that is not true. The home constructions in the most towns and cities are concrete constructions, many with flat open roof tops. Table top and container grown techniques can have a profound effect on many lives here. The place I just moved to has a 20'x60' rooftop on the 3rd floor, with a roof top water tank. I am starting to build table top boxes myself, and will add these photos to this site as well as the two local forum blogs. These are also very useful techniques for the elderly and handicapped gardener. I would be proud use any photos and will list your user name and this website URL where your photos are located.

I will never plagiarizer your hard work, or that of any other member or associated website. That I promise.

Be careful what you put on those roofs.
Soil (especially when wet) may be too heavy for the roof to bear, causing roof collapse.
While we're not using very thick layers, that's not really needed.
A 1sq.m. patch of soil, 30cm thick, weighs in at something like 250 kilos dry.
When waterlogged (say during monsoon season) that weight can more than double easily.
So you have to make sure that your building structure can support a weight of say 1000 kilos per square meter (just to be on the safe side) in addition to the structural strength needed to support the roof itself.

This of course is meant for all prospective rooftop gardeners (and anyone thinking of installing something on their roofs, like solar panels and rainwater collectors).

Excellent tip and well worth considering when deciding to build a rooftop garden. I will be sure to keep this in mind while building my rooftop garden. In the blog I will be sure to also mention the weight factor, so readers will be aware of it; after all, people's safety should always be paramount.

These are excellent photos of table top garden boxes, many show their simple construction. It will help reinforce just how simple these tables are to construct, and how inexpensive their cost can be. I am sure this will inspire many to construct these types for themselves, and for those who are elderly or handicapped allowing them to enrich their lives.

I want to stress that enriched organic vegetables can be grown on their balconies, rooftops, patios, and the sides of homes or apartments; with the use of table tops, raised beds, and containers.

If Megan is going to let me get away with that, she must really be tired from finishing up her boxes and trellises!

Before we post anymore cooking and plated food in this thread, let's see if this type of content is what James will find useful.
