Fall is in the air and the garden is getting ready for her transition to a new season. Beds are being weeded, planted and tended to in preparation for new crops.
The blackberries are actually turning black and delicious right now, but not in abundance. Melons are still growing and new corn and squash plants have been planted. We are also experimenting right now with a barn owl box in the garden area to help with pests.
There is also lots of Purslane growing in the garden (edible weed). Purslane is known for being very high in omegas! It is probably one of my favorite weeds to eat. It has a lemony/bitter flavor to it making it a great addition to salads or as a topping on eggs.
Approximately 400 lavender plants have been planted beside the garden. Not only do they smell phenomenal, but their variety is called ‘Phenomenal.’ Once they fill in it will look like a slice of the South of France.
Tomorrow is our unique ‘Flight of Voices’ experience. We also have a lot of private and corporate bookings being requested at the garden, so if that is of interest, feel free to reach out. There are only three garden dinners left in 2018, so be sure to book one asap if you don’t want to wait till March 2019.
Current Harvest @ Saddlerock: Kale, Strawberries, Purslane, Artichokes, Sweet Bell Peppers, Ghost Chilli Peppers, Hot Banana Peppers, Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Butternut Squash, Eggplant, Chard, Flowers, Chives, Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme, & Mint.
