At last I may spill the beans: The all-gardening March edition of Martha Stewart Living Magazine, edited by gardening director Stephen Orr, is on newsstands now and in it you will find 66 Square Feet! I feel very lucky.
And having just arrived Stateside I still look forward to getting my paws on a copy.
Photographer Juliana Sohn shot the images, perched calmly on a tall ladder on the roof (and while she worked I learned that her mother is an experienced - and secretive - forager). Stephen, below left, directed the proceedings and Estorbo, Vince and I tried not to get in the way unless we were asked to pose. Feta was drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with crushed thyme (hmm, I'm getting hungry, jet lag makes me want lunch now. Why did I not bring the Koringberg olives back with me? Stupid.), pickled wild garlic was tasted and served, and serviceberry cocktails were poured - they may have been sipped, too. And if this wasn't all exciting enough, I believe they will be featured in a new iPad and iPhone cocktail app.
If anyone was amazed that a tall Frenchman and South African and a long cat could all live in this tiny space, no one said so.
And perhaps that is part of the point?
Food, flowers, friends. That is the recipe. They can all be mixed in a very small bowl.
Serve to anyone willing to be pleased.
You can buy this second all-gardening edition of Martha Stewart Living on newsstands, or purchase a digital edition for iPads online.
