by Grace Bonney FACEBOOK TWITTER PINTEREST little gardening in the morning. the chilies are doing so well. i cut some flowers from the front yard and watered the garden while he was still sleeping. we stopped at in-and-out for lunch on the way to the beach. i always get a grilled cheese sandwich. CLICK HERE to read about the rest of Jeana’s perfect day after the jump… abalone cove is our new favorite beach in L.A. it’s very rocky and cozy. on the way back we stopped by at some thrift stores. i found a vase for 95 cents and brad got some books. dinner at pizzeria Mozza. i dressed up for the special date. summery shrimp and mango appetizer and rose wine. i had yummy artichoke and olive pizza. finished with strawberry, pistachio, espresso gelato. it was the perfect day.

Reply jeana sohn says: August 16, 2009 at 6:07 pm viv: you don’t need a big space for a veggie garden. you can always plant them in pots. – many of mine are in pots. just make sure they get lots of sun and enough water. i usually buy baby plants except lettuce. i wish i could give you special tips but i’m a beginner as well. good luck with your garden!
