A Vegetable Garden in May

This morning, I stopped at Chanticleer, one of my top five favorite local getaways. It’s a former estate and now a public botanical garden on 35 acres.

I made a beeline for the fenced-in vegetable garden, where I took the following photos and a 15-second video (click here to watch).

There’s nothing like an edible garden…

Spring mix-a blend of mild and bold baby greens…

I love this idea for growing lettuce; it keeps the rabbits and chipmunks out.

Perfect rows…

I can’t wait to plant a big vegetable garden next year…

Rambling on up…

A bed framed with willow…

The only way to grow mint is in a container…

  1. Thanks for the kick in the pants, Sue! I’ve been needing to get out and start getting the beds cleaned out and planted.

    I love the boxes with lettuce. Great idea using the greenhouse paneling as cold frames. I may have to steal that idea!

  2. glad to see somebody’s garden is growing. with this sunless, rainy, cold may, we can’t get any growth. 🙁 stopped by our local farmer’s market; i felt better when they told me they are way behind too.
