Rooftop Chickens

February 15, 2017

Located on Bowman’s expansive roof top patio overlooking Fremont and the water, the

community chicken coop is a cherished part of daily life for many Bowman residents. Walk

through the rooftop’s glass enclosed event bungalow, past barbecues, and lounge chairs and you will find yourself nose to beak with Bowman’s friendliest feathered occupants.

Tended to by their kind-hearted caretaker Kevin Scott, the owner of nearby Portage Bay

Grange, the favored fowl enjoy their days eating treats and scratching around in the fresh air of

their lofty living quarters, while their nights are spent nestled cozily into their warm enclosed

roost. Residents enjoy the fresher than farm fresh eggs collected daily by apartment staff. It is

reassuring to know their eggs are coming from hens who are happy, healthy, cared for, and

most of all, loved by those who enjoy their offerings.

Our now famous feathered friends have been featured in a local news article, as well as a

report on Evening Magazine, and apartment’s across Seattle are considering starting urban

coops of their own. If you would like to meet the chickens, just head to the rooftop. Bring a

handful of raw oats, and you are guaranteed to make a few new friends. If you would like to

enjoy the incredibly delicious eggs produced by our happy hens (the yolks are amazing!) just fill

out a waiver with the front desk and inquire each day for available eggs. Eggs are distributed

on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to take a peek to see what the chickens are up

to, check out the 24 hour coop-cam.

the newest members of our community.

How to Roast Nearly Any Vegetable

November 20, 2016

Thanksgiving is coming and so are the holidays, which means you’ll probably be in the kitchen a few times over the next few weeks. For those of us who aren’t experts in the kitchen, roasted vegetables are the way to go. Whether you’re bringing a side dish along or you simply want to try making a healthy addition to any meal, here’s how to roast nearly any vegetable.

Pick Your Veggie

You really can’t go wrong here. From tomatoes to parsnips to asparagus, every vegetable is worth giving a try.

Choose Your Oil

Olive oil is certainly a staple, but don’t be afraid to try other delicious oils like coconut or sunflower. Don’t be afraid to skimp on this step either. How much oil should you use? A good rule is until your vegetables are coated with a glossy finish.

Next, simply turn your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, spread those veggies on a cooking sheet and cook them until they’re slightly brown or toasted. Then, add salt and pepper to taste and you’re done. It’s really that easy.
