Afternoon Stroll…..

17 Jul

Another way to eat well here at the Seminary is to take advantage of the food grown on the grounds.  As you stroll around campus, you will find all kinds of goodies for the community to pick and take home for dinner.  Here are some places I went and what I found.  Leave a comment if you know some places where things are growing that I missed.  Keep in mind there are herbs everywhere as well, but if it is not basil or rosemary….I probably can’t identify it, so leave a comment and tell me what you have found!

Here are some things growing by the admissions building (if you turn left right before the main entrance to campus):

Tomatoes….there are green beans there also.  Over by the entrance pillars we have:

Green and purple cabbages (they are ready, so go get one!) and brussels sprouts.  In the mini quad we have:

Broccoli and LOTS of basil.  In fact, there is basil everywhere you look around here.  No one should ever buy pesto in a jar here.  In the perennial garden there are even more beautiful looking grape tomatoes:

There are also MORE tomatoes growing along the fence by the radio tower.  Over in the triangle near Wartburg and Sieck halls there are lots of different kinds of peppers, both spicy and bell.  Perfect to go with those tomatoes!

I also found cucumbers and beets in the garden/bench area near the chapel.  The flower beds of the chapel should have some wonderful sweet potatoes this fall.  So, take an afternoon walk and you just might be rewarded with something fresh for dinner!

    If you pick cabbage you may want to bring a small knife or clippers. I used my keys 🙂
