Sometimes I get all domestic.


It sounds so strange to say, but in my little piece of Orange County we have quite a garden in the back. It changes a bit from year to year but right now we have: oranges, lemons, pears, grapes, pomegranate, tomatoes, basil, rosemary, marjoram, Anaheim peppers, jalapenos and cucumbers growing.
