Vegetables Are Growing!

Some of you have asked us how the garden is progressing. It’s definitely progressing! Sorry, we’ve been so busy renovating the mini-golf and 2 doorways, along with all the regular Spring Clean-Up that I’ve gotten behind on my garden blogs.

The U-Pick Organic Garden is definitely coming along nicely. Farmer David is missed, but Farmer John is doing a fantastic job filling the shoes.

Mother Nature hasn’t cooperated with her share of the watering (yes, we’re exceptionally dry this year), but last night I took some pictures while Farmer John was watering.

Our U-Pick Organic Garden,
Thanks to Farmer John

If you didn’t stay with us during the garden season of 2009 or 2010, let me tell you how this works. Those who camp here are allowed to pick from what is ripe in our U-Pick Organic Garden. It’s a feature of our park. It’s part of camping here. There is no fee.  There is, however, a donation box at the garden if you would like to show your appreciation & offset the expenses to Farmer John (he’s not an employee of the park). Farmer John creates the garden out of the his joy and passion for gardening. Other than donations, his compensation is merely seeing the pleasure you gain when you enjoy his garden.

For more on our garden, we invite you to read these earlier blogs and to book a campsite so you can enjoy the garden, please go to our website.

To follow the developments of the garden, we also invite you to follow us on Twitter and on Facebook.
