I just had to post my favorite vegetable photo for 2010.
The blues have been in our garden for 15 years or more.
‘Volunteers’ they’re called.
They make the best chips.
Nice and crisp!

Summer of 2008 I was asked to bring interest to a home garden.
{Note the before photo.}
Three years later after thoughtful planning with the client,
and hard work by Pat Knight and his crew,
we put the wraps on it this summer.
As you can see we added many elements.
Stacked stone walls, a fire pit, wall trellis, blue stone paving.
Out crop granite with stream bed and stone bridge.
And four arbors, made from local milled cedar,
built by crew member Randy Autem.
It’s been a pleasure to create
a very private retreat.
There’s also a basketball court with a regulation NBA hoop,
stone benches and arbors around………pretty coooooool!
