At exactly 6pm last Saturday, the gloomy skies parted and bursts of sunshine lit up the garden at Morven — just in time — as friends, families, and fellow farmers began streaming in to celebrate and enjoy the fruits of summer for Gazpacho in the Garden!
A huge thank you to everyone who joined us, for what turned out to be a lovely (and unseasonably cool) July evening! Another HUGE thank you to some of our sponsors: The Local Food Hub for donating boxes of ripe, delicious, gorgeously colorful veggies for the gazpacho, as well as Albemarle Baking Company for generously provided dozens of freshly baked loaves of bread.
From three different kinds of homemade hummus, herb butters, bean + corn salsa, cukes, peppers, tomatoes, Carter’s Mountain peaches, watermelon, and 4 giant batches of gazpacho to soup — it’s safe to say there was plenty of deliciousness to go around. It seemed that everyone enjoyed strolling through the garden rows and sitting together on hay bales and picnic blankets — and youngin’s were having a blast digging into and leaping off our giant pile of compost!
The ladies in aprons (aka Team Morven) loved seeing old faces and meeting new friends — thanks for making our second annual Gazpacho in the Garden a huge success!
