The organic gardens of the Adorable Purple Victorian are a culinary delight. Guests are welcome to harvest a light lunch from the salad and herb garden, that includes arugula, spinach, basil and a variety of lettuces in season. A nearby wine barrel is brimming with roma tomatoes, chives and dill. This creamy dressing is delectable on mixed greens, a baked potato or as a dip for fresh veggies.
