Garden of Eden?
Granddaughters from England
I'm not a gardener, I never claimed to be a gardener and I can never understand how it is that the weeds always grow faster than my seedlings and thrive when everything I have planted shrivels and turns into mulch (does that sound familiar to anyone else???). However, my garden is the first impression of the Ranch and, seen from the road could give an unfavorable impression so, out of a sense of duty and as a guardian of the land in my care, I very reluctantly try to keep it tidy. Currently we grow raspberries, blue berries grapes, tomatoes and strawberries which (luckily for me) thrive in the super rich fertilized soil (see poo poo and more poo). We have planted an orchard and have a number of established fruit trees, so, in season we are able to offer a wide variety of fruits which will be available as farm sales, on the Farmers Market and through the Food Revolution Co-op. We have an apple crusher which we will rent "on site" to crush apples (yours or ours). You need to bring a suitable container/s for the squeezen’s. The is a small rental fee based on the amount of apples to be squeezed. There is no fee if all the apples are from our orchard (No charge for extra protein in windfalls). Please call ahead of time for availability. We don't do "pick your own" as we are very aware of the dangers of climbing trees and do not want to upset our insurance company. If you visit me at the Farmers Market in Key Center, please don't expect me to know much about gardening, that’s Greg’s field. I do fur and feathers, oh yes, and good (or not so good) ideas.
