Sunchokes

In between my dream world and the world of haste is a thin veil of plants. A hedge of lanky ladies-- the Sunchokes, sunflowers native to North America-- rule the space. They are the sentries.

Gardening with O’Keeffe

In the verdant walled yard behind Georgia O’Keeffe’s house in Abiquiu, an elegant stone irrigation canal channels water under tall trees and beside flower beds. For the first time in many years, the canal also irrigated a lush and varied vegetable garden this summer. Once the major source of produce for O'Keeffe’s table and pantry, the garden has remained largely inactive since the painter’s death in 1986. This summer, eleven high school interns helped revitalize the vegetable beds.

Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center

I recently had the chance to visit with Amanda Bramble of Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center.

The property is an inspiring demonstration site for hands-on learning about sustainable design and construction.

Sweet Heaven and My Zen of Making Goat Cheese

She runs across the yard every time. And every time she waits until I come and retrieve her from the front door. It's our ritual that she loves and I hate; you'd think I'd learn. "Time to milk Buttercup. Come on girl." She trots back in front of me, occasionally kicking up her back hooves in a giddy goat jig.

My plants will not grow

My garden has a weird growth curve this year. Something like 5th percentile for height and 10th percentile for weight. In all my years gardening I’ve never seen my plants so diminutive
