A cross between a cabbage plant and a turnip, rutabagas have a longer growing season than both of those (about four weeks longer) but the extra time is worth it. The flavor is sweet yet savory and milder than turnips. Try it in a root vegetable gratin, mashed with carrots or roasted with a topping of fresh parsley and apple cider vinegar.
With a sweeter, milder flavor than traditional red beets, this golden variety is an easy to grow, low maintenance root vegetable. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours before planting in a sunny spot in early spring (3-4 weeks before the last frost). Space them 2 inches apart if growing for greens or 4 inches apart if harvesting for the roots.
Also known as Rooseheart, this member of the Brassica (mustard] family has a striking exterior with chlorophyll hues and subtle shades of pink and magenta. The watermelon radish is known for its mild, slightly peppery flavor and pairs well with salads with creamy dressings or in combinations of sliced apples and fennel.
The lakeside setting of this Colorado garden provides a stunning backdrop for visitors to enjoy. The use of native plants throughout the garden creates a seamless integration to the landscape beyond the property.
The strong architectural forms of this lakeside modern are the backdrop for several new outdoor spaces, such as a Zen garden, swimming pool, and entry courtyard that all compliment the house by using like materials and extending the forms into the landscape.
A love of color and a collection of Suzani blankets inspired the palette and design of this eclectic library. A pair of classic wing chairs is perfectly sited to take advantage of lakeside views. Two shimmering garden stools sub as ottomans to bring in a bit of bling.
