Hmm, sauteed spinach with a side of kale?

French sculptor Rodin, like his countrymen, most likely loved his food fresh from the garden.

At this sustainably built house, grape vines are trained up a porch, artichokes grow next to roses, berry bushes and strawberries scramble over the edging. The Thinker ponders while spinach, kale and potatoes grow all around him. It’s a little easier to imagine what’s for dinner when dinner is growing three feet away.
