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!

Garden Goodness

There's no secret about how Alex likes the garden!

How do things look mid/end of May?


Popcorn coming up:



Carrots, thinning out to make room for tomatoes:

Broccoli, not yielding to the red fruit vines:

Tomatoes growing anyway, needing cages!

Onions, needing to sleep!

New pears forming:

And peaches!

Tomato madness!

The fruits of my labor:

Can I come live with you for all that fresh produce?

Awesome! How many potatoes will you get out of that box? Do you mound dirt as they grow, or just plant them deep? We have some growing (first time) and I have NO idea how they're going to do...
