New in '09 - Reid Plantation Garden

In the 1800's, it was pretty common to have a small garden near the kitchen. Keith Loflin has researched to find out what varieties of plants were common in those days - and has planted them at the Reid Plantation here at the FarmPark. Here is a list of herbs you'll see - along with some tomatoes, corn, okra, peas, beans and more.

All the plants are growing pretty well, but only the herbs are ready for harvest. He expects this to be a late garden.
