Our garden is now accurately measured and it is confirmed that we are officially 92×42 feet with 35 plots for the 2021 season. As in nature nothing is the same and each plot varies a little bit, so each one is unique. The map shown here shows actual location and size as closely as possible.
Plots 13, 19, 20, 21 and 23 are still available. Click on the menu above to connect names to the plot numbers.
A warm welcome to the new gardeners who are joining us this year. Any community plot (1,3,4 and 8 so far) is for community use to pick, herbs, strawberries, rhubarb. The flowers on the north east edge of the garden are Dahlias. Click the Dahlia Tribute to see a glimpse of what is in store this summer.
Havenwood Garden had a good season for tomatoes and with tomatoes comes salsa. What better way to spice up Havenwood Salsa than to add Havenwood Hot Peppers.
The salsa created by Annellies is really good and so she made a batch with the addition of a hot chili pepper. Other gardeners have tried a little pepper in their evening meal and they are mild enough to add a little edge, yet will not burn if used prudently. These are the small peppers, probably around the Jalapeno level..
The longer ones, around the Cayenne level haven’t yet been tested in the Havenwood Salsa, but I heard from an undisclosed source, that a pilot is in the works.
The salsa has been tested on fried eggs, a toasted bagel, fresh basil and fresh tomatoes and the feedback is impressive.
