Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

If you've got the money, honey,

I've got the Times.
The New York Times Magazine is devoted to food this weekend, including an article "Farmer in Chief" by none other than Michael Pollan. Also featured, Mark Bittman, chef Kenny Shopsin, and an interactive feature peeking inside the refrigerators of five "food leaders".

One critic felt the magazine was more about food politics than a celebration of all things edible, but this close to the election, maybe that is par for the course. My recommendation? Order takeout, pull up a screen and enjoy!

You can say that again. Pollan's article ought to be required reading for all the candidates and all the voters.
