The Vegetable Garden

The Vegetable garden is a series of long beds lined with green oak sleepers. The vegetables raised here supply the tearoom throughout the summer and autumn. Winter vegetables include garlic, beans, rhubarb, asparagus and leeks. In the summer this area is very beautiful with contrasting lettuces, corn and runner beans.In the greenhouses we grow tomatoes, cucumbers, chillies and squashes.

This year we experimented with arches of runner beans and it has been very successful. We like the height and the prettiness of these structures. Ducking under hanging runner beans seems to bring the garden experience closer.
