The road to winter

Ahead stretches the long road through winter- mile after mile of bleak landscape and little change in terrain. It is time for the gardener to take a rest in the passenger seat- feet up on the dashboard and weary back hugging the seat. Her right hand, resting on her belly, is rough. The tiny trenches in her palm are still full of soil from her last stop—pulling down plants, chopping them into pieces, mounding them on the beds, layering leaves and manure. Cementing it with water. Her parting gift was cover crops- winter wheat, hairy vetch, fava beans.

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. She and her husband, Andy, have created an amazing living system around their home on 38 acres just north of Madrid, which is completely off the grid - without even a well. They grow vegetables, fruit trees, fruiting shrubs, and other perennials, based entirely on natural precipitation and rainwater catchment. The property is an inspiring demonstration site for hands-on learning about sustainable design and construction.

The tomatillo…

Delicate Chinese lantern shaped orbs hang from the tips of the branches. Each lantern is made of discarded butterfly wings, made sturdy by a okra and lettuce sap glue.
