Arcadia Edible Garden Tour: Part 1

The Arcadia Edible Garden Tour is a semiannual event in my neighborhood. I was so excited to begin my morning adventure last Saturday. My friend Theresa and I were prepared with our map in hand.  It was early and we were ready to go!

So many people are getting back to growing their own vegetables, fruits and herbs. With all the chemicals and food additives you find in grocery store items, I get that people are looking for alternatives. I want to know what's in the food I'm putting into my body!

You never know what you'll discover when you step into someone's backyard. Nestled in a neighborhood within walking distance from my condo was our first stop along the way: The Boho Farm.


I got so many ideas for planting my own little edible garden. The owner Caroline hosts brunches and dinners at her home using fresh ingredients from her garden. I had the opportunity to speak with her for a few minutes.
Fresh peaches are my all time favorite fruit. 

The photographer in me couldn't stop shooting. I loved the signs, the pillows, and ...loved the farmer work shoes.


I loved the fresh jams and honey for sale. Caroline teaches classes on jam making.

Of course, my friend Theresa took this opportunity to taste the freshly made lemonade. They offered a variety including lavender lemonade.

What an exciting start to our journey. At the risk of creating a very long post, I will save the rest for another blog post to be published soon.

Blessings and love,

  3. Hi Debbie! Lavender lemonade? That sounds exotic! I love farmer's markets, and this looks like a huge cousin to that. You are so right about the different chemicals that are used on our food. So fun to have your pick of so many organic choices. The peaches look so good. I haven't a good peach since...I don't know when!

    Looks like you had a great time :)

  4. I thought the name sounds familiar. My! A year already since you shared with us about this special place? I love organic stores even if it costs more. The benefits are noticeable when it comes to my allergy/sensitivity same with my son. But that's even more exciting to see the sources! That lemonade sounds good on hot, summer days! Take care.
