Dr. Bashioum Hosts Garden Guests

August 20th, 2014

Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine

I had special guests visit my garden last month, Sushi Chef extraordinaire Billy  Tserenbat from Sushi Fix and Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine food blogger Stephanie March. Of course it was an occasion that called for a glass of wine while we toured the unusual fruits and vegetables that I’m growing. I find great pleasure in sharing my harvest with family, friends and neighbors and it’s a kick to have things that aren’t available locally. Everything in the garden is edible and provides some interesting flavors for cooking. Besides the hand-grafted espalier  apple trees that you see in the background of the photo, I have French white woodland/alpine strawberries called fraise des bois, Japanese Shiso and Shishito peppers, Peruvian citrus peppers and other weird stuff. Gardening is a great hobby and I find it relaxing to walk home and work outside after doing surgery. Although Lindsay rather characterizes it as “farming” rather than gardening now due to my yearly expansion! No wonder it is ranked as the #1 hobby in America.
