San Francisco’s Sunset District doesn’t usually win the award for “Best Neighborhood.”

It’s pushed all the way over there on the left side, impossibly far by SF standards from just about anything except the beachΒ and it spends much of the year covered completely and wholly in Karl the Fog.

For the past two weeks, I’ve been garden-sitting at a friend’s place in this under-recognized little gem of a ‘hoodΒ and it has been a seriously unexpected treat.
