Food For Eating

How many local restaurants do you know of that grow some of the food they serve out back? What could possibly be fresher. Sunny Point Cafe in West Asheville does just that. They know exactly where their food comes from and what is in it or more to the point what is not in it or on it. One of these days I will manage to eat there.

I am liking these sturdy cattle fencing trellises. I could use something more substantial like this in my own roadside vegetable garden. Project. List.

Melissa Metz, the garden manager for Sunny Point discusses vital ideas with Frank Hyman. She graciously welcomed two busloads of garden bloggers to her garden with homemade lemonade and fresh baked biscotti from the cafe.

No Asheville garden would be complete without a little whimsy/yard art.

Perennial flower bed or vegetable garden? Good bone structure, a touch of art, a dash of flowers all combine to show that vegetable gardens can be a thing of beauty.

Then you get to eat some of the freshest, best tasting food in town.

AHHHHH, how did I miss the sink with the alligator in it??? Too funny. That cattle fencing is a great idea.

This is our favorite breakfast place in Asheville, bar none. We have also had dinner there. Interesting menu, to say the least.

I want to eat there too. So little time and so much to see and do.

That sounds like a wonderful place to eat. I've used the cattle fencing for a couple yrs now. I love it. My cukes are growing on part of it now. Had it cut for my purpose.

Loved our visit to this garden with a purpose. I wanted to come back and eat there but too much delicious food was always around during the fling.

I saw a steady stream of people coming and going at the Cafe. I WILL eat here on a return trip to Asheville!
