Chris Culp  Photos from my backyard suburban garden in Southern California. Fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, berries and plenty of failed experiments.

Fresh #berries are the best.
In the store, they can be expensive and expire/mold quickly. But they are not too difficult to grow.

Preparing some stuffed grape leaves today, or #dolmas, one of my favorite #appetizers.

Using excess leaves from my #grapevines, then filling with a mixture of rice, onion and various herbs herbs from the garden like #parsley, #dill, and #lemonbalm. Also substituted the traditional currants with gojiberry and mulberry since those are in season.

First time attempting to make these so we'll see how they come out. There are plenty more extra grape leaves that need to be pruned right about now.

First ripe #loganberry, and first time I have ever tried one. They really do taste like #raspberries, but the center is solid like #blackberries.

I'm excited because these vines grow vigorously and there are a lot.

De-hulling #favabeans. Next step: Blanche and remove their waxy coating. Very time consuming.

I'm fairly certain that the energy expended to process these outweighs their caloric value.
