Our little garden at Teatro Metaphora

In the beautifully located Teatro Metaphora, we have a small garden that we all take care of. For me it is something unusual, since as I have never lived in a house, I have never had opportunity to grow my own food before. Moreover, in amazing Madeiran climate you can easily keep the garden green all year long.

As I have said, the garden is really tiny, but we have quite many different goods from there. First of all – hot peppers few times a year. We also grow spinach, tomatoes and strawberries – imagine how surprised I was to find a strawberry growing just in front of my room in January!

We also have various herbs growing in the garden. Can you imagine something better than collecting fresh herbs right from your garden just before cooking? We have parsley, basil, rosemary, mint and mellisa. Some of them are also amazing for tea preparing – my favourite one for sure would be fresh lemon grass tea.
