From landscape to gardens, let’s take a quick look around the backyard to make sure your soil is fully prepped to receive new plants. Here are Full Circle’s must-dos before digging in.

Which Full Circle products will you need?

  • For prepping soil, use BOOST Soil Amendment.
  • For a filler soil for gardens, use KICK Garden Soil.
  • For growing in containers with last year’s soil, prep with BOOST Soil Amendment.
  • For filling new containers or starting seeds, use SOAR Potting Mix.

How a restaurant at 6,200 feet builds an experience around the meal.


At first glance, it wouldn’t seem as if Lone Eagle Grille’s chefs need to worry too much about keeping their restaurant servers busy. With a classic mountain-lodge-of-yesteryear feeling and a stunning location on Tahoe’s picturesque north shore, it’s easy to imagine this restaurant coasting on its atmosphere alone. 

Chef de cuisine Shane Hammettth

However, chef de cuisine Shane Hammett says that’s not the case. He and his culinary team, along with the restaurant managers and resort staff, are tirelessly working to create for guests something they can’t get at just any Tahoe restaurant: a thoughtful and authentic gourmet experience.

Bucket lists are out, and in are vision boards, challenges, and projects with attainable goals and start and end dates, such as 52-week and 12-month challenges. And it’s just that line of thought that’s led to my big 2017 project, Cocktail Chronicles: 52 Weeks of Cocktails. 

Truth be told, this all began a few years ago in an effort to innovate my life. On my 30th birthday, rather than wallow in self-pity and a bathtub of wine (not that there’s anything wrong with that) about my 20s being over, I was instead running down a volcano in Maui with a parachute strapped to my back. A few seconds later and I was paragliding over Maui’s Upcountry. What resulted was a year of attempting to do at least 30 things that I had never done but had always wanted to do.

I did 38.

Welcome to edible Reno-Tahoe’s new blog and website! Isn’t it pretty? Don’t you just love that new-website smell? We’re almost a month into the new year, and we haven’t stopped celebrating, but it’s for good reasons. First, like I said, the website.

Then there’s our new-and-improved blog. Here at edible, we already pride ourselves on being your go-to source for all things food and drink in the Reno-Tahoe area, but the fact that we only publish six issues a year leaves us always wishing we could do more. Now we can! Look for blogs from the eRT staff, myself included, as well as our uber-talented contributing writers and photographers as they share what’s happening in the food and drink scene. Plus we’ll occasionally have special guests dropping by to say hi and tell you lots of cool things, from cooking, gardening, and travel tips to tales about experiences at special events, restaurants, bars, or retailers.

Here’s something else we’re SUPER excited about: Guess who’s joining our fold? The team over at edible Sacramento, that’s who! Yep, you read that right. Our publishers, Amanda Burden and Jaci Goodman, have purchased the 14-year-old publication that has been THE food + drink resource in America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. We’re all going to be one great big happy family!
