I had a chance to visit Chanticleer Garden last week on my way to Rodale and am gushing about it here and there, mostly with my photos. So for Rant readers I'll send you to those links and just show off two of Chanticleer's staff of experts.
On the left is Doug Croft, who's in charge of the whole kitchen garden, and seemingly lots more. Doug gave me a tour, pointing out everything new since my visit in 2009 and making sure all my questions got answered.
Above right is a new addition to the Chanticleer staff – Lucy Dinsmore, the horticulturist daughter of D.C. Master Gardener Barbara Dinsmore.
Oh, and just one more – Bill Thomas, executive director of Chanticleer. I actually took this shot two years ago but I have no doubt he still looks this dashing.
