My friend Nick, who grew up with a garden in his Newark backyard, loves to get his hands in the dirt and grow things. So I'm thrilled for him that now, after decades of living in Manhattan, he's recently moved to a Brooklyn apartment with, yes, a garden! Here it is, a work in progress when I visited. When I showed this photo to Nick, he reminded me that since I took the picture, he's added several wax bean plants, some cornichons, some haricots verts, some arugula, etc. There is no stopping him.
