need this garden

Did anyone else see this in July's Martha?

I nearly fell off my chair.



But then again, how could you possibly eat all of that food? we can barely BARELY give away all the stuff coming out of our garden right now. Though I should mention that most of that stuff is squash and really, people can only eat so much of it.

Next year I will turn our ENTIRE BACKYARD into raised beds and get a stand at the farmer's market and live a fruitful life of food growing and cooking.

beautiful! had huge pile of squash to deal with last night, so decided to grate it, added a little garlic, asiago, basil, s&p, a touch of cream, and served it over pasta...tasted like something new and yummy! best of luck with yours!

Sigh, I would just about die for a backyard, much less a garden as gorgeous as Martha's. A girl can only dream...

I can't wait until Spring time and I can start up by balcony garden again, Winter is so depressing! Although my couple of pots by no means compare to this garden, but I can pretend, right? Thanks for the inspiration!

Jennifer said...

Erin - that sounds totally delicious! I think I might need to make something similar this weekend. Thanks!

Vanessa- Hi! i'm in marina del rey. Where are you? Your store looks so cute!

Jennifer - Yes! I was kind of waiting until the sunflowers bloom but I suppose that might be another month. I'll post soon.

It is incredible!
I was just blabbing to my boyfriend last month how my dream garden with have lots of little paths between raised beds. Sometimes I feel like Martha has hijacked brain.

This is just stunning. I would love to spend balmy summer evenings in this garden.

I too pulled this imaged out of this month's magazine.. such an inspiration! I have a small garden in the front and back of my house.. but it's not my own house so I can't just do as I please with the land I live on. One day..
