Passing down heirlooms...
Figs are all about this weather. Our favorite variety is “Peter’s Honey”. Not only does it have great flavor, but because it is green when ripe, the birds don’t bother it. #smarterthanbirds #figtree #petershoneyfig
A portion of the daily haul, and tomatoes are just getting serious. We always harvest when they are slightly underripe to keep critters away and minimize splitting. They finish ripening inside without any loss in flavor #goodthingimadefeta #sungold #earlygirl #row7seeds #bestcucumber #🍅 #kitchengarden #potager #organic
Pruning the boxwoods is immediately gratifying
Carrots love tomatoes! We planted these in between tomato plants, and they were ready in record time. We will keep picking from this patch for our summer salads. #kitchengarden #potager #organic #biologique #carrots #companionplanting
The creeping fig is marching up the siding. Love it or cut it?
Wishing everyone this mood #washedrindcheesefeels

Land Rover is a very aspirational brand name. Driveway Piddler might be more accurate for this ride. #landroverdiscovery #landrover #diymechanic #1997
Throwback to last weekend and dinner with @vaughanlucille #happymothersday #rosethatsmynickname
Fish Fry!!!! A good trick I learned with anything you’re frying is to set them on a rack for 20-30 minutes to allow the breading to stick. When they look half wet and half dry, you’re good!
I absolutely adored our visit to the @alexsmithgardendesign HQ. The mixture here of edibles and flowers was just incredible. #fennelbulbfriday
You can almost hear the veggies growing on this warm and sunny day. This Zucchino Rampicante seedling just sprang up in the warm soil. We are trying it a some other C. Moschata squashes to avoid our usual vine borer issues. Because moschata stems aren’t hollow, there’s no where for the vine borers to lay their eggs and cause problems 🤞🏽 #kitchengarden #potager
The in laws are visiting, so we took to the woods. #forestbathing
One of my favorite things about Instagram is @hensleejimmie and his “It’s Friday Chickens!” posts. Here’s our chickens’ eggs in his honor. #fbf
I’m so glad our David Austin roses are blooming again. This “Gentle Hermione” has the classic old rose smell with a strong incense background that’s almost masculine. #davidaustinroses #gentlehermione
Our pincushion flowers are having a moment, and we support their choices
