VIP - stands for Vegetables and Insect Pollinators! A unique garden in our collection since it promotes diversity, pollinator plants, vegetables and unique trellising systems for taking our garden vertical!
Last winter was so mild, rosemary and artichokes overwintered - the later resulting in 3 artichokes! For those of you who do not know, the artichoke we eat is actually an immature flower. It only forms after the plant has gone through a cold period. COmmerically, the majority of artichokes in our markets come from California - in fact Castroville CA holds a yearly artichoke festival!
