Garden Tour: Late July 2012

3 Aug
by Deanne

A lot has happened since we shared our last garden tour. We decided to close our restaurant but not our building or business.  A big reason to stay in this little patch of the world is our raised-bed garden and mini-orchard. We plan to figure out how to use the space to promote healthy cooking and eating.  So far, we’ve used the vegetables we’ve grown for FarmerChef specials.

Last month the onions were showing their shoulders. Now they are drying out in the hot summer sun.

When you provide the right environment, plants just do their thing.  Here we corralled our tomato plants to contain their stellar growth.

The sun has been hot, just what it takes to grow summer squash.

How’s your garden looking?
