We have survived yet another heat wave in Los Angeles! I am still shocked our kale hasn't bolted yet being that it is a cooler seasoned crop.
There are some delicious fruits being harvested right now like plums and doughnut peaches. I harvested a bunch of the peaches for tomorrows garden dinner chef. As you can see from this weeks blog photo, most of the artichokes are now flowering & look like jewels!
In addition to a garden dinner tomorrow night, we also have Yoga Saturday morning and Goat Yoga (2 classes) on Sunday.
If any of you are ever interested in volunteering in the garden, I have created a new experience on AirBnB called 'Farmers Hike & Harvest.' Participants get to volunteer with a garden project in addition to make a healthy snack from the garden. The first one is next Friday and is already sold out! I will be adding new dates again soon.
Current Harvest at Saddlerock: Plums, Doughnut Peaches, Apples, Tomatoes, Beets, Collards, Strawberries, Carrots, Kale, Artichokes, Hot Banana Peppers, Sweet Bell Peppers, Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme, Mint, & Edible Flowers.
