Road Trip – Southbound

One of the great things about living where we do is our accessibility to New York City by car or train.  Many of our customers make the northbound trip every weekend while others of us enjoy heading south to take advantage of all the city has to offer.

marthatallHere’s something I’m planning on doing in the next week or two.  I thought I’d pass the information on…

The Edible Garden: A summer-long Celebration of Growing Great Food at the New York Botanical Garden – June 27 through September 13

Discover six great and informative garden exhibitions set throughout the 250 acre landscape (including Martha Stewart’s Culinary Herb Garden pictured here).  I’m taking my granddaughters to the Beginner’s Vegetable Garden and the Vegetables and Kids Garden.

There are garden exhibits for adults too including:

Be a Seed Saver Exhibitteaches you how to grow from seed and help save vegetable seeds with seedling trays. Signage explains vegetable seed starting as well as seed-saving techniques for the end of the season.

The Heirloom Tomato Exhibitfeatures 34 glorious color portraits of heirloom tomatoes. The images pay homage to the heirloom tomato–a sampling of varieties grown every year by acclaimed food writer Amy Goldman-and the talents of photographer Victor Schrager.
