We finally have summer after Junuary and the plants are growing fine. Even the tomatoes are blooming. It is time to enjoy the garden. Our garden party will be Saturday evening, July 10th from 5pm to 9pm. Gather with friends and enjoy music, fine food, a glass of wine and a stroll through the garden on a nice summer evening.
Big River Events will be providing small entrees for modest prices and will be creating dishes such as andouille ratatouille, venison sausage with grilled onions, wild boar with braised red cabbage, wild mushroom strudel, and grilled guinea hen with potato pancakes as well as other entrees. Delightful deserts will also be available. We will have fine wines from Chile, Australia and California and micro brews and soft drinks. A string trio will perform classical folk music to help set the mood for a wonderful evening. There will also be a stone sculptor working on a romanesque sculpture and examples of his work. We have set up tables in different areas of the garden so you can bring a group of friends and have your own mini-party. The nursery will be open from 4:30 pm to 8pm so you can find that special plant for your garden or container. To attend, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (503) 780-6200) your RSVP so we know how many people to plan for. There is a $10 cover charge to help cover expenses.
