Home and Garden; Oakland Edition

We found a great place right in north Oakland, in easy biking distance to all the places we need to go (including the famed Berkeley Bowl!). Allison got a job working at a cute boutique in Berkeley. Jon's still searching for that perfect job (i.e. anything). So here's some photos of our stuff!

When we moved in the backyard was a huge cat toilet. It was literally covered in cat shit. After an extensive cleanup effort, we managed to plant a decent sized garden and the plants are doing well.

The house came with a monster rosemary plant.

We weren't sure if these poppies were going to make it, but the first one bloomed this morning.

Red Burger Onions.

Dutch Cabbage.

Dexter found a new friend. Its Sally the Salamander! She's shy but we're hoping she eats some bugs.
