On Saturday July 14, we welcomed a new class of Master Gardener Interns to a morning of “meeting, greeting and eating” in Linda’s backyard. A chorus line of dancing sunflowers (courtesy of the Earth-Kind® Demonstration Garden) turned their perky little “faces” to greet the guests. Over 120 Mentors and Mentees found each other along the way ready to embark upon the journey ahead.
Another “garden feast” had been planned, orchestrated and beautifully prepared by a committee of enthusiastic volunteers, otherwise known as “foodies.” How we love those garden-themed events that give us the opportunity to think creatively and exercise our culinary skills!
And so it was decided, this one would highlight the best that our July gardens had to offer, especially those glorious herbs and veggies.
Our menu included a “little of this,” and a lot of “that.” Here’s a sampling of what we munched on throughout the morning:
Strawberry Lemonade Coolers
Jalapeno Pimento Cheese Sandwiches
Cucumber Dill Sandwich Rounds
Cheesy Quiche Squares
Crudité Tray with Spinach/Herb Dip
Fresh Peach Pound Cake
Lemon Verbena Thins
Dragonfly Sugar Cookies
Summertime Iced Tea
