I keep meaning to comment, but I love your blog. I cant wait to see what else you have planned in this great city! I love to grow my own organic garden in the summer time - or go to pick your own farms. The earthy smells are something I am fond of and bring back childhood memories of doing the same activities with my parents. Growing food and being in touch with the way the earth provides for us is a wonderful way to bond with family.
