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!

Well, we're headed up to the cabin for a week or so. Packing warm clothes for night time and summer stuff for day. And all the produce!!

The giant pear, all the tomatoes, the melons, the gorgeous peppers, are all homegrown.

So jealous of your homegrown produce. And in awe that you can actually eat all of it before it starts to go bad.

Giggle. You *do* have lovely melons, Mar.

Seriously, I see what you mean now, I have that same melon growing out of my compost pile. I can see now that it is in fact cantaloupe. Or musk melon, can't ever remember the difference.
