I recently visited the Denver Botanical Gardens and somewhere in the depths of the gorgeous, lush gardens, and ponds full of lilies there is a kitchen garden, quietly growing in the heat.
It’s compact but packed full of kitchen favourites, plus an abundance of the heat-loving fruits like Tomatillos (or are they Physalis, I can never remember)…
…and Kohl Rabi that is way, way bigger than it would have been in my garden back home!
The Calvolo Nero looks great with a backdrop of espaliered Apple trees.
And a terracotta forcing pot makes a decorative centre-piece to this purple Basil.
And… while digging around in the Pumpkin patch (as you do!) I found this perfect little custard Squash.
