What helped some Fairweather peeps during the health crisis lock down, you ask?


Gardening in place 2020

 “A collage of my garden at the beach, ”  D. Fairweather, gallerist/ interior designer/  OSU master gardener

The breeze blows, things get dew on them, things flower; the sounds, the smells…gardening helped.

March-15th – May 15th

Stay-at-home quarantine

“That’s me back there!. This plant is outrageous!  I cut 9 artichokes today.”  Christine Trexel, artist/ fellow gardener.

Comments to CT:

“Wow. I did not know the plants got that big. I have never grown them.”

“Never seen them growing before! They look so healthy!!!”
“You will have tasty eats during stay home time.”
“What!!!! I love artichokes! You are so lucky!”
“Cute posts on the garden, I may just have to try some recipes!” Christine Trexel
And, so, the stay-at-home order baked a lot of delicious artichoke dishes. › ingredient › artichoke


Gardening and cooking became an excellent way to fight stress and attention fatigue.

In quarantine, many of us were more alone than we’ve ever been, experiencing, for the first time, prolonged solitude.

Looking back.
