What's happening this week in the garden:
When edible plants such as collards, carrots and lettuce are allowed to reach maturity, they produce delicate flowers which attract butterflies and bees.

Normally these plants are harvested while young and tender. The Perelandra research garden allows us to observe the whole plant cycle from start to finish.
