Khuyay Farm

Group Show


Last year I began to learn the important part native plants play in our ecosystem. Last year I started a new shade garden and backyard native plant garden, with a goal of having 75% natives on my property. It’s a work in progress and I’m always adding to my gardens!

My Cottage Garden contains a mix of intensively planted green vegetables, harvested at the peak of readiness, and immediately replaced by the next crop. Strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries and blackberries come each in their season to provide our household with desserts and jams. Visitors in June will delight in the abundance of lettuces planted in red-and-green patterns; garden peas and snap peas coming into harvest; chard, broccoli, beans and other, later veggies all are laid out in pleasing blocks of greenery with the startling explosion of color from the central poppy walk. The herb garden supplies us with all the culinary flavors needed in the kitchen and surrounding the entire edible gardens are the delightful flowers of late spring: foxgloves and roses, Canterbury bells and columbines.

A quiet sanctuary—my Cottage Garden is a mix of vegetables, herbs, perennial and annual flowers enticing the visitor to wander, to rest, to draw and to engage the senses. Visitors are welcome to come for an afternoon of chat, share a cup of tea or indulge in quiet enjoyment. Feel free to bring sketchbook or camera.

Pottery


I throw and hand build pottery that is both functional to use daily, as well as distinctive to use for special occasions. The stoneware pieces are food-safe and may be used in the dishwasher, microwave or oven. Each pot is unique with glazes that complement rather than repeat on similar pieces. I hope that the enjoyment I have when I’m working with my clay shows on the finished work.

Hidden in the woods, you will find my “secret garden”, a favorite destination to children and their parents in our neighborhood on Lake Chaffee. Before you reach the garden, you will travel past several raised vegetable and herb gardens and my greenhouse shed, which displays my fuse glass artwork in the summer. The main garden features paths and boardwalks over a brook, a large collection of labeled miniature hostas, a variety of other shade plants and several raised beds created from recycled daybeds. Hand made stepping stones, a totem pole, and other surprises can be found throughout the garden.
