Consistently warm weather arrives a little later in the High Country. Gardeners in this area wait patiently while our neighbors in lower altitudes are tilling the ground and planting their first seeds. However, when planting season does come it’s something of a revival alongside late blooming rhododendrons and clear blue skies.
Our chefs and Restaurant Manager have been eagerly checking weather patterns for weeks looking for the perfect planting time. Finally, the weather aligned this past weekend and the Rowland’s Restaurant herb garden is well underway! Combining owner Bonnie Schaefer’s summertime Farmer’s Market trips, ingredients from local farms, and our chefs pulling basil, rosemary, thyme, and others from our garden, ensures that each dish coming out of Rowland’s kitchen is fresh and satisfying.
