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!

Things that make me happy, again

My lunch, with garden grown squash and basil and last year's (also garden grown) spicy tomato preserves.
Weighing this over grown zuke and plotting it's demise, er, I mean, a recipe to use it (I'm thinking of stuffing it with sage and ground pork and pine nuts...)
Plums from my neighbor's tree.
Flowers in the house.
A few more peas.

Love it all! It's supposed to be over 100 here today! I hope my little peas and beans survive! I need to find a good shaded area to put them.
