Ever since R. Buckminster Fuller popularized the design in the mid-20th century, there’s been something captivating about the geodesic dome. While the structure typically makes architecture lovers salivate, now it’s conquering the heart of another type of urbanist: the city farmer. A new dome-based prototype promises an affordable method of rooftop aquaculture for apartment and commercial buildings—as the website calls it, getting “fish from the sky.”

urbangardenallotment:

Good day down the allotment today, we got the sweetcorn in (fingers crossed it will work we’ve never tried it before.)  While we were at trying new things we sowed a couple of lines of swede to see if they work as well.  We know its a really funny shape, but really starting to love our allotment even more now. We also got the runner beans in today, lets hope there are no frosts, the French beans and maybe the sweet potatoes will hopefully go in next weekend, weather permitting!!
