It was more than an honor working with my dear friend, John Powell, on the Trammell Crow Center project.

John Singer Sargent - Carnation Lily Lily Rose Rose This painting is set in a garden in the Cotswolds village of Broadway, where John Singer Sargent stayed in the summer of 1885. The children lighting Japanese lanterns with tapers are Dolly (left) and Polly Barnard. Their father was the illustrator Frederick Barnard - a friend of Sargent's.

Kids' Gardening

Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier.

I fell in love with konro grills when I was photographing a Japanese grilling book. You get a tremendous, high heat that you really can't replicate with a kettle grill or a backyard Weber; it's perfect for a high sear. -Todd Coleman, SAVEUR Executive Food Editor
