Last of Summer Gardening

September 11, 2010

Nothing spells the approach of autumn better than a bright orange pumpkin patch. How my daughter manages to get such beautiful pumpkins is beyond me! Many of you have been keeping up with my daughter Inga’s gardening in Boise, Idaho. Here is an update on what’s growing in her yard, including the pumpkin above. Her […]

Gazpacho with Crumbled Feta Cheese

September 8, 2010

I learned about Gazpacho when I first moved to California in 1960. It was a huge fad at that time, and I was knocked over by it! It’s been called everything, including “liquid salad,” but whatever you call it, it’s simply delicious! This may seem like a summer-only dish to many of the mainlanders, but […]

Gardening From A to Z

August 28, 2010

Two of my favorite landscapers (Bob and Monty) invited a group of us “tree huggers” to come tour their garden. Since the land on their property is much like that of Ocean View, I gathered lots of how-to ideas on what to grow and what not to grow. Their elevation is about the same as […]

August 2010 Update

August 21, 2010

GARDEN CLUBBERS (photo courtesy of Charles Tobias)   This particular post was published exactly one year ago! It’s a “remember when” rather than “how it is,” I’m afraid. You see, I didn’t think my garden was doing much last year, but all the beautiful things you see here are no longer in existence. Ka’u District, […]

Summer Patio in Boise

August 14, 2010

Several weeks ago, I showed Inga’s garden, promising a review of her latest project – a roof to provide shade for her patio. I just received the pictures for your enjoyment. As you can see, her father and brother-in-law pitched in to help. Inga and her sister kept everyone supplied in nourishment and beverage. There’s […]

Boise Gardening

July 31, 2010

  As I work in my own garden, I watch some plants thrive while others struggle for survival. So I love to see the gardens other people put together.   In the past, I’ve written about my daughter’s small historic home in Boise, Idaho. I’ve shown her garden as it makes the seasonal transitions through […]

A Time to Plant…

May 21, 2010

  It’s always time to plant here, but I haven’t had the chance to really concentrate on it lately. With the springs semester finished and graduation over, I’ve been enjoying my time with soil and seed.   The plastic containers that had contained Costco cherries, tomatoes, blueberries, and other berries had small holes to allow […]

Gallimaufry

October 24, 2009

  Before you go scrambling for your dictionary, I’ll save you the trouble. The word “gallimaufry” originally came from the French and it was a hash made out of meat scraps. So that’s what today’s post is going to be – sort of a hash of miscellaneous items that I find interesting. After my post […]

Fresh-From-the-Garden Stir-Fry

September 2, 2009

OKRA PODS   Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil into a skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, toss in lots of sliced garlic, fresh string beans cut into 2” slices, thickly sliced okra, whole sugar snap peas, maybe a few greens like kale, chard, mustards, or even arugula, plus any other […]

Feels Like Spring!

July 25, 2009

  When I returned from my trip to California mid-June, I saw how much some of my plants had grown. Of course, a few things had run their course and were regrouping for the next growth spurt. For instance, a few little snippets of ivy geranium that I’d broken from a friend’s plant had actually […]

Veggie Farmers on California Avenue

July 11, 2009

CALIFORNIA AVENUE MARKET   Two weeks ago, I wrote about the fruits at the California Avenue Farmers’ Market in Palo Alto. The fruits and veggies were intermingled with flowers and other products, which I’ll show you next week. This week it’s time for your veggies. Across the way from Joanie’s Café where we ate a […]
