Oh yes!! I have found the most amazing vegetable garden at the Chicago Botanic gardens. I was so lucky to have been invited to the gardens to see the preview of a flower show. On my way in I noticed that the gardens had a vegetable garden, I could not resist to visit it before going home and I was not disappointed.
The Regenstein garden has all the vegetables that you can dream off arranged in such beautiful harmony. A walk through the rows of vegetables and fruit trees reveals lots of great facts and ideas that you can replicate in your own home garden. I am full with projects that I want to do, like a wall garden. I just now need to find the time.
The entry to the gardens is through a nice bridge over the main pond. As soon as you step on the bridge, you can see a couple of designed beds that adorned the entrance. These beds contained cabbages, leeks, corn, basil amongst other things.
Once in the gardens I headed directly to my right where some raised beds were in full show. I love the way they were combined and the wonderful ideas to plant cucumbers. I also loved the many handwritten signs with tips and ideas for the gardeners. Here you have some of the best ones of this section.
Continuing to my right I found myself in front of a wall garden. I truly liked this idea and would love to make one in my house.
