Organic Vegetable Gardens

Vegetables all along the views of my Home! 

I dont know if many of you know that I started an organic vegetable garden in my backyard this year! 

New year, new beginnings…I was skeptical about all the chemicals and the genetically engineered vegetables being sold at stores, not to mention the sky-rocketing prices.

I currently have artichokes, heirloom tomatoes (my favorite), peppers, beets, lettuce, blueberries and strawberries.

I use all the vegetables I grow in all the dishes I eat and prepare for my guests at my dinner parties! 

It is not hard to set up an organic vegetable garden, I sectioned off a part of my yard with special plastic netting to ward off the bugs..

Here's a photo of my garden, what do you think?

Tomato Plants! 

If you have any questions or are interested in starting your own garden, please dont hesitate to ask me!

This house has been on the market for 500 + days! Why you might ask? Because it was half built, uncompleted construction.

But I have insider information that the house is under negotiations for less than list price and will be off the market soon!

This is a great deal because of its location, being on the rim of the Riviera Golf Course and for the sales price of under $614 p/sf.

If a house like this interests you, don't hesitate to ask me as I specialize in taking unfinished potential problem homes and make them a complete reality dream home!
