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!

How my garden grows!

Borage that self seeded from my planting last year:
Pea pods!!!!!

The pea forest:Dew drop on pea leaf:
Broccoli crowns:
The fence and gate I built from scraps around the house:
The Three Sisters mounds -- I put corn in each and when it sprouts I will put beans in these mounds and then put squash in mounds in between these:
And an overall view of the lower beds:

Looks fabulous!!!! And great pics! So the birds don't go nuts on your peas or corn seedlings? They devour ours. I don't have tomatoes or peppers started yet... I'm thinking I'll have to buy starts at this point. Sigh!

Lovely garden!
