Open Gardens on Full Moon Sky

With delectable food & sweet friends, we enjoyed our Open Garden Pot Luck yesterday. It was good for me to hear the comments and questions that came up as we were going through the garden. It gave me some perspective and insight on first impressions of the Gardens. For example, a comment that came up about the Meditation Garden was that it seemed as though it had been there for some years already. To me, that meant we had done a good job at designing, for the area had somewhat of a "natural" design to it. We had planned to play music, dance, do several tours of the gardens, do some 'official' talks... All of this, except one garden tour & a roundabout the medicine wheel, was, lets say 'postponed', for better enjoyment of food and friends. The food ended up taking the bigger part of our attention... Even the 'un-kosher' peaches and hard boiled eggs :) We had prepared pizza with veggies from the garden, as well as brucetta with tomatoes from Carya Farm (graciously offered :), and coleslaw with cabagge and carrots from Coop Tourne-Sol. The B.O.V. was probably not advertised as such enough, but the one brought was a success. I was surprised at the end of the evening that even the 'muddy punch' with green froth -kale, swiss chard, cabbage, carrots, celery, cucumber, beets, apple, lime) got almost finished :) Thank you all for coming and joining us for our gathering and open garden tour :)
