Urban Garden

I spent the evening at the Storkels on Monday. Just before everyone else arrived, Bryan offered me some chicken sausage and because I hadn’t eaten dinner, I said yes! Then he offered some salad to go with it – with fresh lettuce from his garden!!

Here’s a photo of one of his many romaine plants.

He pulled a ripe cherry tomato from this plant for me to taste. Very tomato-y!!

The plant to the right is the one that gave up several leaves for me to eat.

Here’s another tomato plant.

They have eggplant, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, beefcake tomatoes, bell peppers and lettuce as well as several herbs and spices. It was thrilling to eat freshly picked lettuce! And encouraging to know that just one block off of Melrose Ave deep in the urban heart of West Hollywood, an urban garden is providing nourishment for a family of two (one of them pregnant)!
