Highlights from this year’s fall colors in Central Park.  A little behind on the post, but better late then never!

creeping colors

Loving the way the greens, oranges, and reds are climbing up the facade. Whimsical…

urban farming: mini corn field

Urban farming at it’s best!   Someone in the UWS is utilizing those sidewalk planters for something more than just flowers.  Best idea ever to plant some corn out there.  Corn on the cob sounds delish right now!

my sugar lumps_tomatoes!

They’re finally turning red!!!  Purchased a small tomato plant seedling from the Union Square Farmers’ Market probably a month ago.  It was of the “sugar lump” or “Gardener’s Delight” (looked it up online…haha) variety.  They are little baby tomatoes/cherry tomatoes. The plant was less than a foot tall when I bought it and now it’s 3-4 ft tall. Insane!  After watching the blossoms turn to tiny pea sized tomatoes, it seemed like it was going to take forever for them to turn red, but finally they are getting ripe.  Looking forward to adding them to my salads. Definitely really rewarding to grow your own food to eat.  Have a bell pepper plant starting to grow. Hope that works out too

medical herbman cafe project_EARTHSCAPE

Giant traveling human-shaped herb garden designed by Japanese Landscape design studio, EARTHSCAPE.

The garden arrives in shipping containers which converts into a shop and cafe.

The herbs that are planted within the body’s outline are either herbs that benefit that part of the body or are herbs native to that particular local.  The money earned is donated to building playgrounds in developing countries.

3 different locations in Japan have been visited by the herbman and more will come in the future.

Really great idea and great cause.
