South Africa–born Marie Viljoen captures the hearts of her readers as she blogs about cooking and gardening on her tiny 66-square-foot terrace in Brooklyn. Named one of the top 10 gardening blogs by Apartment Therapy and the Discovery Channel, 66 Square Feet has also been covered in the New York Times.
66 square feet was the footprint of her first tiny terrace in Brooklyn. The garden and the meals she made there inspired this blog and subsequent book. In late 2013 she left Brooklyn because our landlord hiked the rent dramatically. The Frenchman, the woman, and the cat moved to Harlem, and a new terrace.
This is a blog about gardening in tight spaces, about food and cooking over an open flame. About wine. And water. And watering … and picnics.With pauses for foraging. And cocktail-shaking.
