Colonial-Inspired Kitchen Door Garden

by on July 15, 2017 in Agriculture, Home Page, Uncategorized
If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Colonial-Inspired Kitchen Door Garden behind the library, now is a good time to do so.
Borage flowers are blooming and honeybees have discovered them and we have four Swallowtail caterpillars enjoying the dill plants. Keep an eye out for the caterpillars or their pupa once they mature enough to transition into a butterfly.

Small native pollinators are enjoying the Chamomile and Calendula flowers. The Nasturtium are blooming and spreading.
Volunteers are showing up in the garden. No not volunteers weeding, though those would be welcome. We have a volunteer Borage growing from between the Forget-me-nots and Purslane springing up near the Chamomile.  You might be interested in the fact that Purslane is an edible and can be put into salads, while you are adding to your salad, throw in some Calendula petals and Nasturtium and Borage flowers!

Dry Calendula petals and make a salve for dry cracked skin in winter. (seeds are available in the library)

Enjoy the photos from this weeks garden. Notes from Val of Ag-Com.
