How's it growing? Were you able to enjoy a fresh herb garden this summer? Nothing beats cooking a delicious meal with the freshest herbs possible! This year we're enjoying an exciting new addition at the Secret Garden! Earlier this spring, over 1,100 herbs were planted in our garden oasis! The three perennial herbs that were planted are sage, peppermint and lemon balm. Of those herbs, sage is my personal favorite. This herb, though not the most popular, has so many amazing properties and uses! During my research I was blown away by how versatile, delicious and timeless sage is! Read about our favorite tips and facts and share yours with us! Stay tuned for a future newsletter with photos of our first distillation of the 3 herbs into essential oils!
I don't know about you, but we absolutely LOVE strawberries here at Brys Estate. And we believe berries taste best when they're slightly warm from the sunshine and still a little sandy. At the Secret Garden, we don't spray our fruit with any chemicals so you don't have to worry about any little ones sneaking a berry or two on the way home. As our strawberries start to plump up and ripen, we've been compiling all our best tips and tricks to get the most out of your strawberries this year. Check out the surprising health benefits, our expert landscapers' secret tricks and our top 5 ways to use your freshly picked berries.

Spring is a welcomed change on Old Mission Peninsula. The long, cold, and dark winter months had us eager only to bundle up and rest along with our landscape. The start of spring has us anticipating the beauty we know will surround soon us, but there is a lot of work to be done to get us there.
