Butterhead, Romaine, and Red Leaf varieties are off to a good start while we continue to prep the garden beds for our fall and winter vegetable crops. We are blessed to live in a climate zone with a growing season that lasts from March to November, and have soil that needs little to no remediation except for the weeding.
Three types of phytonutrients found in cucumbers provide us with valuable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer benefits. Cucurbitacins, lignans, and flavonoids have been the subject of active and ongoing research to determine the extent and nature of their anti-cancer properties.
We are making two batches of non-fermented pickles with the first harvest of cucumbers that are thriving in our garden, and will savor the flavor of vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese that these incredible vegetables provide us.
Confectionery is broken up into three categories: chocolate, non-chocolate, and chewing gum. A bowl full of non-chocolate goodies picked fresh from our garden is in a category of its own: delicious.
Welcome to The Funk House Art Garden!
Membership to our authentic Bohemian Social Club is by invitation only, but is open to peaceful people and artists who appreciate, support, or otherwise contribute to the creative process of making art.
The Funk House Art Garden is a house with a garden and art.
Creating the Garden was an act of art and of love,
and we toil daily so that both art and love may thrive.
Henri Matisse said that creativity takes courage, and he was absolutely right.
I am courageous in this blessed place,
our haven of inspiration.
I will create with determination to inspire others
to create without fear.
What fear will you conquer today?
