The Caterer’s Garden- The End Product

By on May 12, 2009, 2:48 pm in Events, Food and Drink | 2 comments

Well, the L.A. Garden Show went off extremely well. I hope some of you were able to catch it. Paul’s exhibit was so successful, he sold one of his installations right on the spot. No wonder, as they were the perfect compact garden, even for those with only a small (10′ by 5′) patio or balcony space for a garden. Paul recycled wooden pallets, and as he writes it’s a “garden space that is completely moveable, even the bins allow for replanting when the plant has been exhausted of its bounty”.  And there are some great ingredients to create some really wonderful meals, right outside your kitchen door.  Hey- why not? Even the Obamas have planted their own kitchen garden.

That’s Paul in his funky gardener’s cap. And notice the wild peacocks wandering around. They enjoyed a bit of the garden, too, unfortunately. Paul says they nibbled on the back sections overnight. He covered the front section with netting. Hopefully something you won’t have to be concerned about in your home garden.


Ciao Bella,

  2. Well, that’s a good idea. I also want to make something like that in my garden, so that it will become more organize. Anyway, thanks for giving me an idea. I really enjoyed reading your post. Keep it up!
