Veggie Garden

Casa Encantada lies in Western Garden’s ‘Zone 16, also known as “Gardener’s Heaven.” Therefore, just about everything often grows to ‘Chernobyl proportions.’  Six foot carrot stalks and 7’ Shasta daisies have been grown here.On an elevated plot above Orchard Lane lies the redwood-bordered Veggie Garden. Here one can easily grow tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, artichokes, and just about anything else. The watering is programmed so all one has to do is plant and harvest. And when you look up, the view and lemon-blossom smells make any work here a joy. What’s your favorite fresh vegetable? Now, it’ll be only a short and lovely stroll away and down Orchard Lane.
