we embarked on a magical mission of domestic proportions.
during the pleets passover event, i had asked patrick where they bought the gorgeous greens for their (completely covetable) outdoor garden+he said red hook. now, i don't know red hook at all (other than the great yellow+blue block that is ikea), due to the fact that it's most easily reached by car-which we do not have...so two saturdays ago (quick aside-i know i'm doing a crap job at keeping up to date on this here blog+i'm sorry for that--my IRL life has been quite busy) we got picked up for a pleet guided plant mission. the liberty sunset garden center is AMAZING, right on the water with amazing views of the verrazano bridge+a really radical range of plants.
we spent about 3 just looking, touching + exclaiming over the goods. i mean, who knew you could spend so much time just browsing at a garden center? truthfully, all of us were surprised that our collective interest was peaked for so long...anyhow, we all ended up with some fun stuff and rounded our red hook adventure with steve's delicious key lime pie (which i don't normally care about-but this graham cracker crust is not to be missed), followed by a bop into erie basin.
cedez, xabi+i came back to ours +got our hands in the dirt for some sunset planting and i was able to realize my vision of doing a mostly green planter and making the other with a range of fleurs..so, blah bla blah, i present you with the results:
i'm going to have to do another run, or two, to the farmers market to snag a few more herbs+fleurs but i'd say we're off to a dynamic start!
