100% Homegrown
A bit about me:
I am a bonsai tree artist selling to botanic gardens and garden centers in over 20 states. I have miniature orange bonsai trees in bloom with dozens of oranges(some ripe) on them. I have a 150 case cellar of home made wines going back to 1986. Author of Herbal Bonsai, Stackpole Press, 1995.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Valentine dinner menu. Tomato soup from 12 varieties of home grown heirloom tomatoes, garnished with avocado and feta cheese. Sauteed asparagus with bonsai oranges and sweet red, yellow and mole peppers from the greenhouse; red grapes, almonds and garlic. Shrimp and blood orange segments wrapped in turkey bacon off the grill. Heart shaped dark chocolate layer cake with Bing cherry jam filling. 2008 Golden Raspberry wine.
