We started a small farm on one of the back quartéis of the property earlier this Spring. Since we use only local ingredients in our gourmet minuvida dinners we want to grow as much organic and local food as we can. From a plot of dirt to a blossoming garden, we are looking good to have delicious local fruits and veggies for our opening later this summer/early fall! We also discovered a wild strawberry patch where we've been able to forage for half-a-dozen evenings of strawberry-yogurt-mint bowl desserts! Yum:-)
We've planted taro (inhame), which is a delicious root vegetable similar to a potato but far richer in nutrients. We also have piri-piri and malaguetachilly peppers to make our own hot sauce; sweet potato, zucchini, cucumbers, watermelon, different types of tomatoes, husk cherries, tomatillo, surinam cherries, fig tree, mango tree, and passion fruit plants!
And finally, our herb garden with 12 different types of herbs (so far!) We have lavender, chocolate mint, oregano, pineapple sage, rosemary, fine mint basil, cinnamon basil, lemongrass, rue, cilantro, parsley and regular basil. Fresh herbs anyone?!
