piggs in the garden

a walk through the garden with horticulturist, andrew murdoch

If you enjoy seeing healthy vegetables and herbs growing in a garden setting, then it’s worth your time to pop into the kitchen garden and have a look.

In  fact, there are two kitchen garden areas at piggs peake and a third area that has been planted with bush food plants. All produce is destined to be used as culinary delights onsite at yellow billy restaurant.

In the first garden, within eyesight of Yellow Billy you can see a few tomato “crop circles” and the “Taj Tomato” structure with heirloom tomatoes “Black Krim” and also “Costoluto Florentino” enjoying the spring weather and potentially producing tomatoes of up to 450 gms per fruit when fully grown.

As all of the plants are grown organically with no pesticides the Eastern Sedge frogs which are sensitive to chemicals are safe in the garden and help to reduce the number of insect pests.

In the second garden, which is east of the Yellow Billy kitchen the purple cauliflowers are still in production for the next couple of weeks.

The three varieties of cabbages which feature each week currently in the Yellow Billy menu have been very prolific and are enjoying the recent rain.

If you’d like to follow what is happening in the Piggs Peake gardens and the promise of an occasional dad joke or two, you’re invited to revisit our website each fortnight to follow our Blog.
