Friday PhotoEssay – Garden Tour Edition
I haven’t been doing a very good job this year of keeping you up to date on all our upcoming events. This weekend is our annual Garden Tour, and I was able to check out several of the gardens this morning and earlier in the week. I was hoping to have one picture of each garden, but I realized that I don’t quite have them all.
Anyway, the tour is going on today, tomorrow (Saturday), and Sunday. For more details, go here. I did want to give you a little bit of a sneak peak to encourage you to go. If you are really into food gardening, a lot of times the Garden Tour may not have lots to offer you. This year, there are 3 gardens that have significant fruit and vegetable gardens! The others are gorgeous, but not quite as edible.
To get started, here’s a look at the Demo Garden this afternoon. Nothing too major this week, since things are growing pretty slowly with the cool weather. We aren’t on the Garden Tour this year, but you can always come take a peek!
This Derby garden has a variety of different beds with perennials and some cool stonework.
Yes, they are potatoes. I honestly don’t think about potatoes as a potential border plant! But once they start dying back, how hard is it to just dig them all at once and let everything else grow up around them?
I hope this little taste inspired you to check out the Garden Tour.
Have a great weekend!
