Spring is finally upon us. The silky pansies which colorfully adorn the front walkway of our kitchen are in full bloom and with it, the returning buzz of busy bees and lazy fluttering of swallowtail butterflies. Soon our herb beds will be thick with fresh basil, rosemary, chives, tarragon and mint. Being situated near the Harpeth and having several acres of beautiful land, lends us a unique ability most catering companies cannot boast–we can grow our own produce! We have a green thumb which is no longer satisfied with just growing our own herbs, so we have plotted a sizable garden to begin planting our own organic leafy greens, cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, peppers, squash and more! In preparation, we have been composting our organic kitchen scraps to add to the soil’s nutrients. Why throw away perfectly good fertilizer? Check back frequently for garden updates and more photos.
