Edible mosaic


We are lucky to have a very interesting project just a few kilometers from our home. A former water tower and its engine room have been turned into a sustainable restaurant cum hotel called Villa Augustus.

They serve delicious food prepared with the ingredients that are grown in the kitchen garden between the two buildings. It is fun strolling around and have your tea surrounded by flowers, herbs and vegetables.

Yesterday I went there for my part in the Garden Challenge for July: The edible garden. The lettuce plot attracted my attention because of the artistic arrangement of the colours. Just not sure what that tiny weed is doing in the middle. Anyway, hope you enjoy the photo.

    • Thank you, Jude. I was surprised to find this attractive row. It shows that the gardeners love their job, I think. Making something beautiful out of ‘ordinary’ lettuce. Eating out in this restaurant is always a pleasure. They often change the menu according to the season and the offer from the garden. Guaranteed fresh food!
