A great way to start a Sunday morning

August 21, 2011

My fiancé and I have a friend named Charlie who’s been cultivating a garden this summer in Woburn, Massachusetts. We saw it for the first time this morning, and were quite impressed. Check out my pics:

The garden is 54 by 54 feet.


Jalapeno peppers


Asian eggplant




Brussels sprouts

There were lots of bees pollinating flowers.


My pics don’t even begin to show all the produce that was there, including spinach, tomatoes, onions, Brussels sprouts, squash, zucchini, lettuce, eggplant, rosemary, basil, snow peas, green beans, cabbage, radishes, parsnips, cucumbers, jalapeno peppers,  corn and watermelon. We ended up with a bunch of veggies to cook this week!

Here are a few pics showing the garden’s surroundings:

There's a swan in the distance!

Pizza with salad on top

June 28, 2010

That’s what I had at Stone Hearth Pizza in Cambridge on Saturday night.

My Farm Fresh pizza (after I ate a bite or two)

My “Farm Fresh” pizza consisted of garlic oil, roasted cherry tomatoes, charred red/yellow peppers, Yukon gold potatoes, artichoke hearts, green/black olives, fresh mozzarella, and a salad of arugula/red onion/prosciutto on top.

It was amazing! And pretty healthy! And what’s even better is many of the ingredients were local. Read more about the restaurant here.
