While we’ve been celebrating the summer kitchen, the Gardenista team has, too–all over the world, and without ever having to come indoors.
Above: Celia Hart is an illustrator and printmaker in Suffolk, England, whose blog keeps readers up to date on her plantings on the grounds of an old estate, her work (oh, and her chickens, too). Take a Garden Tour with Kendra, stately henhouse included.
Above: This week’s Cook’s Garden belongs to Laura Silverman of the aptly named blog Glutton for Life. After exploring her and her husband’s Mexican sour gherkins, shiso, lovage, and hops (she says the first tender shoots are delicious in an omelette), have a look indoors, too.
Above: “My first thought was that prim hydrangeas might benefit from a walk on the wild side,” says Justine of her assignment to invent The Bouquet of the Week. “Figuring I could add a little Danny Zuko to their Sandy (to use a Grease reference), I set out in search of some unruly locals.”
Above: Speaking of Justine–in her Cape Cod cottage (which we featured in the Remodelista book), she keeps an old-fashioned root basket above the kitchen work table. Now we know where to source one, thanks to 10 Easy Pieces.
Above: “For me,” Michelle says, “the perfect summer kitchen is one I barely see.” She has rounded up five of her favorite garden-to-table recipes for peak-season salads and sandwiches, no cooking allowed.
And don’t forget: Voting is now under way for the 2014 Remodelista and Gardenista Considered Design Awards. You can vote for the finalists every day until August 8. Winners will be announced August 9.
