Happy Independence Day

In honor of Independence Day, we found some interesting information to share on Thomas Jefferson's famed gardens at Monticello. Jefferson grew 330 vegetable varieties in a 1000-foot long garden terrace. The siting of the garden along a massive stone wall enabled Jefferson to extend the growing season and create a microclimate for tender vegetables such as his favorite French artichokes. Jefferson also grew 31 species of fruit in an 8-acre "fruitery". Peaches and apples (for brandy and cider!) were planted amongst apricots, almonds and cherries. And, in proof that some things never change - the entire garden was surrounded by a 10-foot high deer fence. For more information see the Monticello website, or even better plan a visit.

The Bryn Mawr Farmers Market WILL BE OPEN this Saturday, July 3. We hope you'll come and visit - and we wish you a happy, healthy holiday. See you on Saturday!
