It was the perfect weather—the first sunshine, in fact, that we’d seen in a month of Saturdays! June 12, 2010, dawned a beautiful day for the first annual Strawberry Festival at Front Porch Farm in Arden, Washington.
The owner-gardeners were on hand giving personal tours of the greenhouses and gardens. Demonstrating how the raised beds and drip tape set up worked, answering questions, and explaining how we grow your food. The John Deere farm equipment was on display, almost as popular with the kids as the “bounce house”!
And then, when they’d looked their fill at the garden, guests enjoyed gourmet strawberry short cake from Lovitt Restaurant, served right next to the Front Porch strawberry patch. There was also fresh squeezed lemonade served over ice. And spinach salad topped with pickled rhubarb, strawberries, and goat cheese.
It tasted just like summer.
Thanks so much to those who joined us. We’re already making plans for next year!
