New hatch assembly

IMG_8779A new prototype hatch assembly being put together on south wall main roof.  In the distance is SE corner main roof which is all habeneros this season (14).  Last season sunflowers grew here.  No sunflowers on main roof this season.  When completed the hatch assembly is supposed to provide roof ventilation while keeping water out.  Some design issues still being worked.

Chives in the foreground keep coming back year after year.  Chives are a great invasive plant that can survive in containers even over harsh winters.  A lot of mint died due to the extreme winter we had but not chives.  Pineapple mint was another big survivor this winter.
