Grow Food Indoors, Even in Winter

The world’s most frugal foodies farm what they eat. But what if you live in an urban apartment without a yard? No problem: you can grow food indoors even if you don’t have windows! You don’t need sunlight to grow sprouts — which we explain below — but if you’re willing to spring for grow lights, you’ll be able to raise any of the other crops in this article. That said, you can skip the grow lights altogether if you have at least one window facing south — they have the longest exposure to the ...

Rebuilding the Greenhouse: Foundations

Unsurprisingly, spending multiple weeks away from the farm this summer created a serious backlog of work to tackle now that I’m home. Some of that is maintenance, some of it is fun work, and some of it is shit I have to do for a second time, because I didn’t do it right the first time. Ahem. And then this happened… Nothing like some high winds to teach you about not taking shortcuts when you’re putting in a little greenhouse. I first built this thing (from a kit) last June, and while I leveled ...

Bibliotheque Nationale by Philippe Starck for Flos

Having just covered Front’s Surface Tension Lamp, which seeks to redefine the very concept of the lamp, let’s turn our attention to Philippe Starck and his Bibliotheque Nationale for Flos—“a magic bookcase where the books take flight towards the light.” Bibliotheque Nationale reminds us that lights should illuminate books, among other things, and facilitate relaxation. The floor lamp by Philippe Starck retains the familiar shape of the everyday object, while adding to it a sense of motion—and d...

Apples, honey and oolong

Sometimes the best ideas for cooking with tea come from a complete upending of one’s preconceptions. How’s it done? In my case I often open the tea cabinet and pick out a tea at random and then another without identifying which teas they are. I let them steep for three minutes each using water at just under the boiling point (Yes, I know that each tea likes its own temperature for brewing but I’m throwing caution to the winds here a bit). Then I taste the teas side by side and jot down without s...

A New Lisa Luby Ryan Design and Build House

One of my favorite Dallas designers is Lisa Luby Ryan.  I love her aesthetic – it’s warm, inviting, and accessible.  Her designs are not too contemporary or so exclusive that only a lucky few could ever enjoy her look.  No.  It’s the opposite.  On her website,  Lisa shows Before & After photos which provide an easy way to study and learn how to update your own rooms, with just a few key pieces, paint job, and accessories. OK.  Maybe it’s not SO easy!  Lisa just makes it look that way.  But, th...
