Garden Harvest Infusions

Reposting for Holiday 2012 Archive Dive.  Our theme is Rhubarb — and I think Rhubarb Bourbon has a nice holiday appeal!

It’s the last day of school, and last Friday was my birthday (but I didn’t have a celebration drink with some friends, as I was in Colorado) so I am headed out to the local pond for an afternoon of frolicking in celebration of summer, school being out, and birthdays.   What could be better?

This morning, I realized that, for the first time, one of my rhubarb plants will give me a harvest in a usable quantity.  Combine that fact with this inspiration from the New York Times and I am suddenly all into infusing alcohol.   On my menu is Rhubarb Bourbon, Strawberry Vanilla Rum and I might even try the Strawberry Mint Bourbon.  – which I would use to make Strawberry Mint Juleps.   All except for the vanilla is abundant in my garden right now.   What are you harvesting now and what will you do with it?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
