The Garden Update … Now and in 2010

08/31/2009 at 2:15 pm Leave a comment

When we came up with the idea of developing a U-Pick Organic Garden at High Plains Camping, we had no idea it would become such an amazing draw to our guests. The customers have thoroughly enjoyed this new feature, and happy campers is what this business is all about. It’s a safe bet that the garden will be a standard part of our offerings.

Last week the media picked up on the story when we were included in an article in the Dallas Morning News. Their audience is only a 10-hour drive from here. Our statistics show that about 10% of our guests register with a Texas address, so being included in their publication is a tremendous event for us. Their article is linked here.

Woodall’s Campground Management also picked up the story and posted it in their blog.

Farmer David has taken some suggestions from others and we’ve created a 2010 Garden List. The large area we now use for the garden will be even larger next year. Some plants will be moved to a separate section so they don’t overcrowd the other plants. We’ll add some new varieties. We’ll also plant more of certain items, and will stagger the plantings of some so they produce for a few more weeks.

Feel free to leave your comments and we’ll see if Farmer David can add to his 2010 Garden List.
