Earlier, I posted some general photos from the Garden Tour I went on last Sunday. Here are some more specifically culinary photos from the tour.
This, believe it or not, is a chicken coop. The outdoor area for the chickens is inside the black fence to the left.
This vegetable garden is in one of the older suburbs of St. Louis, filled with large trees. This garden is shared by three houses, growing on the only sunny spot of any of those three yards.
This is one of two large triangle-shaped vegetable gardens at the residence of the director of the Missouri Botanical Garden — they get some professional help and a large budget, I’m guessing. Cabbages on the left, chard on the right, small fruit trees and tomatoes in the middle. Plus flowers.
Another garden with laying hens — this one at the residence of the director of Tower Grove Park.
Do you go on garden tours? Do you see many vegetable gardens? I think I’m seeing more than I used to — and, definitely more chickens!
