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 Equals Fresh Dinner Fixings!

Green shallots ready for grilling (olive oil and sea salt):
Our first "real" potato harvest (Gregg dug a couple last week to "check").  This a good sized bowl, we used half for dinner:
The last of the broccoli (there's more out there but it's getting too bitter):
I did the potatoes in the oven with fresh thyme, lemon, and garlic:
