This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

The tomatoes are in!

We are now picking the ripe ones faster than we can eat them. I actually canned all the San Marz and some of the others today -- just two quarts, but nice homegrown stuff. The girls still keep up with the grapes pretty well -- fresh from the vine at picking and then at each meal.

I thought these two were just picture perfect!
