Petals From The Past

We’ve been wanting to visit Petals from the Past in Jemison for a long time and finally made it there. They specialize in hard-to-find and heirloom plants and vegetables, antique roses too.

They have lots of events, including u-pick times for blueberries, figs, and other fruits. On September 20th and November 15, Chris Hastings who owns Hot and Hot in B’ham will be doing a cooking demonstration for just $20 per person.

I just have to show this Chinese Wisteria because you don’t always get to see wisteria with these long velvety “beans” hanging:

I’m sure that during his cooking demonstrations at Petals, Chris will be using some of the recipes from his upcoming cookbook. On October 6, the Hot and Hot Fish Club Cookbook: A Celebration of Food, Family, and Traditions is coming out. Chris has a couple of the recipes in the book available here to sample.
