I've posted in the past about their garden. Tom's designed and built a rainwater retention system that stores 150 gallons of water and is gravity fed into a normal water spigot/hose connected through the garage. The stored rainwater is MUCH better for topping off their fish pond than city water.

You can see their garden during Garden Walk Buffalo and the Free Open Gardens on this Thursday from 6-9 p.m. this and also on July 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 6-9 p.m.
There will be many other Open Gardens on Thursdays from now to Garden Walk weekend in Buffalo, Kenmore, Lewiston, the Northtowns, Parkside, the Southtowns, Hamburg and South Buffalo.
On Fridays, you can visit gardens in Aurora/Elma/Holland, Buffalo, Lancaster, the Southtowns, and South Buffalo.
Just visit here to see what gardens are open and what times. PLEASE respect the stated times the gardens are open. You can print out a .pdf of the Open Gardens Booklet. Or, if you prefer a hardcopy of the book, you can pick one up (just $2) at the Visitor's Center in the Market Arcade (downtown Buffalo), the Botanical Gardens (South Buffalo) or at some of the garden tours happening on the weekends all over the place.
I wonder if Carol & Tom's vegetables are planted alphabetically?
Here are some other totally gratuitous shots of their garden for your viewing pleasure.
