The okra's been in the ground since early August and mostly harvested but we still get a flower or two when a new fruit bursts out of it's stem.
Our San Antonio RV Park serves many a traveler and several seasonal guests as well-
who would love the freshness of home grown vegies and herbs but aren't in any one place long enough to grow or just not there at the time of harvest so we came up with The Community Garden idea last year and it has been a real success.
Even guests who visit far into the winter are able to take advantage of the "greens" garden since these will continue to produce right through a freeze.
Currently the staff does the planting and cultivating but we are hoping that guests who reside here for a month or more at times, will take the initiative to get involved and share the satisfaction of actually growing or participating in the production of what we eat. As we get some additional participation we will likely enlarge our growing areas.
If you're visiting us at Hidden Valley don't hesitate to treat yourself to whatever is harvest-able during your stay. Now the swiss chard is very large and leafy and the newest lettuce and herbs are about an inch tall and growing steadily.
Welcome to the Harvest!
