Following the Afternoon Tea Party at Earthbound Farm, the boys and I decided to wander through the gardens on the grounds of the farmstand. And while anyone who knows me knows that I have a black thumb, it was inspiring nonetheless. To see what they are growing here locally - successfully - well, it gave me garden-goals.
I love this shot of busy bees. I can watch bees all afternoon; they're mesmerizing!
I had never seen quinoa growing. This plant was in the Children's Garden, in the 'Q' planter box. D yelled, "Mommy, we can grow quinoa." You can grow quinoa! But, I would love that. We eat quinoa quite a bit. I need to read up on how it goes from plant to plate. Do I have to dry it? Can I use it straight off the bush?
"Mom, look at the wheat!" D hollered when he reached the 'W' planter. "Too bad Dad is gluten-free. We could grow wheat."
And, just to confirm, I asked one of the gals if they had pomegranates out there. She said yes.
What an inspiring stroll. There are so many things I want to plant at our new house. While I love supporting local organic farmers that I know, it'd be nice to be able to eat more things from our own yard.
Okay, who's willing to give me gardening tips?
