Today we are remembering our kitchen garden, from where it started to where it is now. In the location where the kitchen garden is presently, used to be simply grass, until the ground was tilled up and maintained as a growing area for vegetables and herbs. Most of the herbs around the perimeter are perennial, so come back each year, however new heirloom vegetables are planted each spring. This is done to show how food was provided during the 1850s and also to grow plants that can provide healthy additions to the meals of volunteers and the community. This year we had tomatoes, onions and carrots planted, as well as corn, beans and squash in the orchard garden. Take care!
