The Wynwood Walls

Miami, Florida

We were recently in Miami and visited the Wynwood Walls, an outdoor collection of wall murals painted by an international array of invited artists. This museum is free to the public and draws crowds from around the world. It was begun in 2009 by the late Tony Goldman and has transformed the formerly industrial area into a vibrant arts district.

Many buildings in the Wynwood Arts District that surround the Wynwood Walls have also been painted by muralists. This new one commemorates the late Kobe Bryant.

March is the best time for salad greens in our kitchen garden here in the Sonoran desert. Red and green kales are growing quickly with the lengthening days and warmer soil. Herbs like dill, mint, and parsley also love the cool mornings and frost-free nights. Ours have formed such dense patches that we’ve been cutting them by the fistful for tabouli salad and pesto. Tomato plants that survived the winter frosts now have ripening fruit  and our nasturtiums are laden with colorful, edible flowers. Nasturtium leaves are edible too, adding a peppery accent!

Our winter snow peas, planted from seed last October, are also loving the early spring weather. They will continue to produce for a few more weeks.
