We have achieved a major milestone for me at this house—a vegetable garden. At home, I grew up with a garden…even at 8 Grove street, my dad tilled a small patch of ground to make things grow. I have that gene and finally, have the space to make things grow. 

Vegetable Raised Bed 1

Raised Beds

In my raised beds I have: Tomatoes (3 heirloom varieties) , herbs, peppers, zucchini, eggplant, cucumbers, hot peppers (habanero and ghost peppers—really for Michael’s boss), bell peppers, 3 different lettuces, and some mini watermelons.

Gardener’s Socks

I actually did wear sneakers. 

Citronella Plant


The next few pictures show Michael’s talent…crafting some potted plants. 

Potted Plants

Geraniums from the former owners—so nice.

Dinner

And finally, dinner. A wonderful frilled salmon with a garlic/dill olive oil dressing, served over grilled asparagus and brown butter basted potatoes.
