Cottage Garden Surrounds a Newly Remodeled Country Cottage
This 2,127 square foot cottage has a fantastically landscaped, luscious cottage garden. The entire home has been newly remodeled with warm, gentle tones, high pitched, open beam ceilings, skylights and French doors to let in plenty of natural light, a state of the art kitchen, a new roof, two new bathrooms, three bedrooms and nearly a quarter of an acre.
A lovely way to break up the expanse of stonework in the pool and kitchen zone immediately outside the home, this green "island" features a charming sign, "Old Gardeners Never Die, They Just Go to Pot."
'Solar Yellow’ carrots have their roots, so to speak, in the Middle East. Some sources date them to the 900s, while others say they appeared in the 14th century. They’re a bit sweeter than most orange carrots, and hold their buttery color when cooked.
Some seed sellers say that white carrots were grown as far back as the Middle Ages. Today, the cream-colored roots of ‘Lunar White’ offer cooks and gardeners a mild flavor and small cores. While carrots with colorful pigments are thought to offer more health benefits, this variety is a good source of dietary fiber.
Don't settle for the same old green salad. 'Simply Salad™ City Garden Mix’ pellets are packed with a blend of varieties that will fill your bowl with green, bronze and maroon lettuces. For best results, plant while the weather is cool; you can start harvesting in a couple of weeks. The plants, which are suitable for containers, will re-grow so you can pick several times.
'Yellowstone' carrots are non-GMO, which means they are open-pollinated, not genetically engineered. They're sunflower-yellow in color, with a sweet, mild flavor and a crisp bite. 'Yellowstone' is an Imperator-type carrot.
Kitchen Garden With Herbs and Vegetables in Raised Beds
Your kitchen garden can be as elaborate as a large plot of land sporting many raised beds and trellises or as simple as a few pots on a sunny balcony. As long as you have a spot that gets five to six hours of sun (hopefully near the kitchen, thus the name), well-amended soil or a good potting medium and are committed to the process, your garden will thrive.
