Today I planted about 20% of the Garden . Our Multi colored carrots and Watermelon radishes that every one loves , well they take about 90 days from seed . Also planted today ; Marigolds, Cosmos, nasturtiums, Zinnias, Parsley, cilantro, dill, chervil, Nappa Cabbage, Savoy Cabbage and Fennel . The Electric Fence is up and charged to keep the Peacocks out and our sprinkler system is set to "auto'. Very Exciting our new season has begun !
I know our membership is curious about our Garden for the 2013/14 season. I will try to answer a few questions. First of all today I planted 15 tomato plants, the varieties are: Gold Nugget, Yellow Cherry, Black Cherry, and Sun-Gold . We should start seeing these tomatoes on the salad bar in late December! Vegetable and flower planting begins next Monday, Sept. 30th. And our Big Planting Day will be a Sunshine Saturday on Saturday, November 9th, when the Membership is invited to plant! This Season we will also be experimenting with micro greens and sprouting beans and peas. Vegetables from our garden will start to show up on menus in mid-December and by mid-January we will have a Garden Fresh Selection on the Salad Bar .
