Patio season is here! I just had the patio rebuilt here at Tilth. It will be completely done by May 23. I chose a reddish cumaru wood, which is sustainable. You may know it as Brazilian teak. It was harvested responsibly from a forest managed by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). The money goes straight back to the village that harvested the wood. The sealant we used is also environmentally friendly.
We put some speakers in on the porch, so you can enjoy listening to some tunes while enjoying the culinary garden and people watching. Speaking of the garden, I’ve planted numerous herbs and other plants: anise hyssop, lemon verbena, bronze fennel, wild arugula, chamomile, echinacea, Alpine strawberry, orach (mountain spinach), orange thyme, flowering rosemary, nasturtium, pansies, marigold, cardoon, tarragon, lovage, wheat grass, red Russian kale, and summer savory.
So please come enjoy it while the weather is beautiful!
