If you appreciate really fresh food - and really fresh herbs - you'll love dining at Feast (on Speedway). Here is part of their chef's garden brimming with herbs and lettuce and more. Yum! And those sunflowers! I would love to know their secret to such thick stems and huge blossoms.... I have flower envy.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
