What are you doing for Earth Day?


Happy Earth Day! What will you do for the Earth today? Your action doesn't have to be large; even starting a garden in your own backyard can be good for the earth. Find more green ideas and make your pledge at: act.earthday.org.

If you pledge is gardening, we can help! Flowers mixed in with vegetables can make for a very attractive garden. Did you know that here at Stonewall Kitchen we had beets growing among the flowers? Below you can see guests stopping to admire the purple beet leaves.

The most wonderful part about our gardens is their beautiful and elaborate design. Every time you walk by there is something new and unique to see! So, as you begin to plan our own garden we hope we can inspire you with some of our garden decor ideas!






Also, stay tuned for updates about this year's garden! Do you remember last year's post about Jonathan's secret garden project? Well this year he has something even bigger and better planned...stay tuned!

Excited for Easter?

 
Are you excited that it's almost Easter? I know I am! What a wonderful time of year. The grass is getting greener, flowers are budding, and the air is warmer. No matter if your Easter gatherings have a religious tone or are just a way to get family together it's a time of year that I know many of us look forward to. Baking the ham or lamb plus all of the sides (click links for recipes) takes a lot of effort on the part of the host. Bringing dessert is helpful, but why not show how much you appreciate your host by bring along an Easter brunch basket (below) for the family to enjoy after the gathering? This is especially good idea if you're lucky enough to be invited to the home of a great cook - make sure you're asked back for a meal again soon!
