This morning, I took the subway to the Bronx and went to the New York Botanical Garden’s opening day of their newest exhibit, Edible Garden. Alejandra from Always Order Dessert put together the event for bloggers and the press and it was an amazing morning and afternoon to be at the garden. The weather was perfect, Dan Barber from Blue Hill gave a funny and educational speech about farming, gardening, and the farm at Stone Barns, and I met a lot of interesting bloggers. Here are pictures from the day – you should definitely stop by the Botanical Gardens some time this summer to see the Edible Garden exhibit!

Getting to the New York Botanical Garden is easy – take the Metro North from Grand Central or the 4 train. I haven’t been to the garden since the Chihuly exhibit back in 2006:


There are exhibits and presentations everyday from the Edible Garden stage – here, the president of the botanical garden is introducing Dan Barber:


The last time I saw Dan Barber was at the USA Network party – I think he’s gotten married since then (or he wasn’t wearing his ring last time!):


After Dan’s talk, we were supposed to have a picnic lunch with the other bloggers – Esther and I couldn’t find them in the cafe, so we took a tram ride around the garden:


There are a ton of colorful flowers blossoming right now:


In the garden, there are all types of fruits and vegetables – here I am in front of the blueberry bushes:


Some eggplant:

A huge thank you to Alejandra for organizing the event and for preparing the gigantic goodie bag!
