Vegetable Garden

The Organic Vegetable Garden is enclosed by a picket fence that is a reproduction of the original picket fence of Rosewood.  Rosewood was the house that graced this site in the early 1800s when it was the home of Territorial Governor William S. Fulton who later became a state Senator.

 

The garden plan was designed by P. Allen Smith & Associates.

 

The 7 symmetrically-arranged beds have wide ledges for sitting on while working, and the garden is fitted with a watering system. The garden in season contains a variety of typical Southern-garden produce such as tomatoes, squash, corn, greens, cucumbers, peas, potatoes, garlic, onions etc. 

 

The garden is maintained by the Pulaski County Master Gardeners and the produce is harvested and used by the Mansion’s culinary staff. Along the east fence are “Gala” apple trees that have been espaliered into the classic cordon pattern.
