April’s Movie

My friend April made this super cool movie.


Pesto, Jam + Pickles

This week I cut all my basil plants, made and froze a big batch of pesto for the winter. I freeze the pesto in ice cube trays so I only have to defrost a little bit at a time. (thanks to Cathryn for that tip).

Pickles from last summer and strawberry jam I made 2 weeks ago. The strawberries aren’t from my garden but they are organic from the Union Square greenmarket.

Garden Gnome

My garden helper Bond. I planted a special treat for her this year. Catnip. Her full name is Bond, James Bond. But we just call her Bond.


The cukes went to my sister and her girlfriend in Boston. John + I took the Chinatown bus up that day for their engagement BBQ. Everything else went into that morning’s frittata. Yum. I picked swiss chard, green beans, green pepper, tomatoes and cucumbers.

Garden 2007

At the beginning of summer the garden is lush, bright green and happy.
