Here are a few recent photographs. The garden is starting to grow. The tomato plants have sprouted some flowers and have gained a few inches since we planted on April 7th. We’ll have tomatoes soon. The zucchini and yellow squash seedlings rose from the dirt within 7 days. Looking forward to zucchini blossoms by May.
We have scheduled a bread class in May. Please click on the Classes link for more information. To sign up please stop by the restaurant. We require that you pay in advance for the class.
It has been one week and the zucchini and eggplant have already sprouted. I can’t believe it. So quick. The basil and parsley are doing well and so are the roses.
Here are a few photographs from today.
I don’t get around to writing on this blog often enough, but recently we have added quite a bit to the Fiore garden and patio. It seems every day there is something new. We found an old windmill that reminds me of Iowa. It gives the garden a farm feel. My goal has always been to create a farm like setting and I think we are getting closer to achieving this.
We’ve added benches, new raised beds, and new planters that I painted with black board paint so we can write on them. Our new employee Sara is our planter artist.

We had a fantastic planting party today. This year I decided to plant large quantities of the herbs and vegetables that we use in the restaurant. We use a lot of basil to make pesto, but 3 plants only makes enough pesto for one recipe. This year we planted 36 basil plants and over 12 Italian parsley plants. We sowed seeds for zucchini, yellow squash and eggplant. We look forward to making the grilled vegetable piccolo with vegetable straight from the garden. We also planted some flowers and Susie pruned everything in the garden. Thank-you Susie. You did a great job.
Thanks to Rob, Michelle, Benny Anita, Susie, Pattie, Jennifer, Milo and Mia for participating. It was a lot of fun.
