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!

A Fall Garden

On this rainy, gloomy day, Gregorie and I went out to check the sprouting in the lower beds.

We found peas:

And carrots:
And calendula:
Gregorie checked out the chard and the little lettuce and kale seedlings:
We also found some late planted tomatoes just starting to fruit:

Up above, the old tomato vines are still producing -- we just need some sunshine to ripen things up!
Even the pumpkin is needing some sun.
The tomatillos are still going mad.

All in all, not a bad haul, for a day in Fall:

I still have like 40 green roma's on my plants. I started pulling them off a bunch at a time to put in my window sill in hopes that some will ripen. Oregon this time of year is no bueno for tomatoes!

gorgeous! Since I've been being better about watering where my little roma tomato plant is, since I planted peas all around it (not to mention the rain), it's suddenly doubled in size. Guess I should have been watering it!

Awesome harvest for the end of a crazy summer!
