Now that's a kitchen garden!

In late June we visited my sis and her husband down in Charlottesville. Part of the enticement to get K. to come along was a trip to Monticello (with its period furniture). I'd been there before, but not in summer, so it was a real treat to see the kitchen garden.

The layout is pretty simple; the garden has rows of different vegetables, broken up so that there aren't large blocks of plants that disease or insects can sweep through.

The employees at Monticello get to take home the produce from the garden. Pretty neat!
