In the Garden June 28, 2009
We’re trying our hand at gardening for the first time this year. We’re following the recommendations in the book by Mel Bartholomew; check out the website squarefootgardening.com.
The results so far have been inspirational and amazing! Our tomato plants are over 4 feet tall. We’ve got two cherry tomatoes , two Roma, and one ‘Big Boy’ variety.
I’ve finally figured out how to properly snip basil: choose your leaves and snip just above the next set down. The plant will bush out at this point, as it will send out new leaves on each side of stem from where you snipped.
Does that make sense? I hope so! (Maybe I should post a photo!)
Both our cucumber plants are doing fine. Our little ‘runt’ is finally reaching for the trellis and it started to grow in height. Pictured here is the pickle plant.

Anna & Larry Danced the Tango like they Invented it June 22, 2009
Anna and Larry were married on Saturday and held their reception at the Chicago Cultural Center.
They danced the Tango for their first dance and did so brilliantly! Not only did they dance perfectly – the happiness and enjoyment on their faces was beautiful.
More photos from their day and favorites from their engagement session are at Andre’s weblog. (That’s Andre shooting in the background!)
