the garden is growing

March 31st, 2011


Those inclined to gardening are finding moments during spring’s sun breaks to get their dirt turned, their seeds in and their hands filthy. And so have we.

In the seven raised beds just a few steps from the entrance to the Harbour Public House, we grow herbs used in recipes at both Pegasus Coffee House and the Pub. Bartenders even pluck fresh mint from the garden to use in our infamous mojitos.

Last year, we successfully harvested basil, fennel, marjoram, thyme, oregano, parsley and lavender bee balm. This season, we’ve dedicated one of the deep beds to root vegetables. With heirloom seeds from Nash’s Organic Farm in Sequim, we planted parsnips and carrots in anticipation of a  early summer harvest.

In addition to herbs, we’re planning on growing bush beans and lettuce in our garden this season. Take a stroll through our modest little garden and watch it grow with us.
