I am happy to say that some seeds I have sown the past few months, which can be tricky to grow, have grown and are looking so good. A part of me is convinced that it is due to the music I play when I plant the seeds. Love is always sown, so maybe the music gave them the extra boost! In case you are wondering, 'they' have been listening to a lot of music by 'Andrew Bird.'
We have some pretty incredible elders that have entered the garden area. They aren't oak trees, but they are 100 yr old olive trees. Their trunks are pretty incredible. Definitely worth a close up when you attend a dinner or experience at the garden.
I am still patiently waiting for the tomatoes to turn red, orange & yellow. When it finally happens it will probably be the first line in a blog. The artichokes are looking marvelously textured. As beautiful as they are, I must say they are one vegetable I don't really like to eat.
Tomorrow is 'Vino & Vinyasa' and Sunday there is 'Chakra Clearing' at the garden. Check them out here: http://saddlerockgardens.org/events?view=calendar&month=June-2018
The photo with this blog post is an example of nature doing its thing. The cactus pads have been nailed to those panels for at least 6 months and have recently decided to show off their blossoms without soil or water.
Current Harvest at Saddlerock: Artichokes, Kale, Strawberries, Microgreens, Collards, Chard, Flowers, Volunteer Fava Bean plants, & Herbs (oregano, thyme, rosemary, sages).
