NIKKI’S GARDEN IN FULL PRODUCTION………………..
This lovely space is in the north of part of the farm by the Tree House Trailer. The garden is named after Nikki, my Britany Spaniel, who now lives under the big oak tree. With a lot of great work by our intern Phil, it is one of the most productive spots on the farm. It is a total mixed world based on how much sun reaches each row. The basil beds have been amazing .
