The Kitchen Garden Grows

New walkway to the upper sitting area and lower portion of running stream.

Last month we broke ground on our kitchen garden and private sitting area next to the cottage.  As most projects do, this one has expanded since we started. Originally we designed the area to provide much needed water diversion and drainage away from the Summer Kitchen Cottage. After a couple of extremely heavy rainfalls, we discovered that we needed to rework some of the drainage. And with that change, came the addition of a koi pond and running stream and a second seating area for Inn guests.  This is in addition to the private seating area for the guests of the Summer Kitchen Cottage and the kitchen herb garden.  We also decided to finally, after 8 years, finish the sidewalk that goes nowhere and incorporate it into sitting area. We are eagerly awaiting the end of the school year so the kids can begin helping us to complete the project. Our youngest is particularly excited about her new fish pond! Stay tuned as we update you on our progress.
