Winter in the Kitchen Garden

The cooler weather has brought stunning seasonal changes to Riverdale's Kitchen Garden.  The garden and the grounds are swathed in the fiery hues of Autumn.  The crisp mornings, warm days and intermittent light rains still encourage the last of the cherry tomatoes and an abundance of herbs - mint, lemon balm, fennel and rosemary to name but a few.  The pumpkins are ripening nicely and along with the amaranth flowers, display a stunning contrast to the deeper colours of the earth.
