There was an inspiring profile of the kitchen garden tended by Leslie Rose Close in yesterday's NY Times (A Kitchen Garden Arranged by an Artist's Eye, July 6, 2006). Ms. Close an accomplished horticulturist, who is married to the artist Chuck Close, grows everything from leeks to fennel in her 60-by-80-foot garden in Bridgehampton, NY. "I can't imagine anything more wonderful to do," she said. "It's spiritual, physical, intellectual, aesthetic, sensual. I feel tied to the basic process of life.'"
