Lately, our weekends have been pretty amazing. Last Saturday, we woke up early, threw on some comfy clothes and headed to Singh Farms. We had never been there before but heard amazing things and were pretty eager to check it out. When you drive up to the farm, there’s a large dirt parking lot, with a little booth and an umbrella. At first we looked around and said to each other, “Is this it?”, but this place is so deceiving. The grounds are expansive and it truly is a secret garden. Everywhere we turned there was something else to catch our eye, flower gardens with the most beautiful colors, banana trees with leaves bigger than our heads and, a full chicken coop with roosters and all! It felt like we could have wandered around this place all day. It was so refreshing to see such an oasis in the middle of the desert.
It seemed as though they were just getting ready for the new season, but had already had a great selection of fresh herbs, cauliflower and artichokes, as well as fresh jarred honey. We had always dreamed of having our own garden and it’s something we still talk about quite frequently, but have always been unsure which fruits and veggies would be able to thrive in these Arizona temperatures. There seems to be nothing better than walking out into your own yard and picking ripe tomatoes off the vine, or that perfect yellow squash to cook for dinner. Everyone at the farm was so friendly and helpful. They had baskets of different seeds, compost and various fertilizers. We’re already planning our next visit, maybe with a recipe or two in mind. And who knows…maybe we’ll start our very own, very small, patio garden!
