The South Pointe Apartments and Homes community garden is ready for summer! Our community garden is a great way to get out and enjoy the beautiful coastal weather. You’ll be able to spend time with neighbors and get to know your community while having fun and growing your own fruits, herbs and veggies! Wondering what to do with your crops? Try swapping produce with neighbors and maybe even throw a potluck at one of the grilling stations.
This year in the garden we will be seeing a wide variety of vegetables and herbs. Some of the things you can expect to see are:
Tomatoes are sweet and juicy and are a staple to the kitchen. Here are a few ways to use them in your own cooking.
Tomatoes are perfect for slicing and adding to burgers and sandwiches. Add some diced tomatoes to a green salad or pasta salad. Make some Caprese appetizers or even a Margherita pizza.
Jalapeno Peppers are spicy and a great way to add a kick to your food. Wondering how to use them? We’ve got a few ideas.
Dice up jalapenos and add them to homemade salsa or sauce. Grill them for a delicious charred spice or try something fun like bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers. Jalapenos can range in spice, so a little can go a long way.
Squash is sweet, soft and full of flavor. This vegetable is delicious if cooked right. Here are a few ways to try it.
Try cooking your squash and eating it like mashed potatoes, or dice it up and roast it for scrumptious addition to stir fry or soup. Squash is best when cooked thoroughly so give yourself plenty of cooking time.
Cucumbers are crisp and refreshing, making them perfect for summertime. Wondering how to incorporate them into your meals?
Cucumbers are the perfect summer vegetable. Slice them up for snacking, add them to a green or pasta salad or try your hand at making pickles! Try lemon and cucumber-infused water for a refreshing drink on a hot day.
Swiss Chard is something you might have never eaten, so give it a try! You just might like it. Here are a few ideas for how to try it.
Swiss chard can be steamed or sauteed and is great in soups, stir fry and casseroles. Swiss chard is exceptionally good in quiche or frittata. You can also eat the leaves raw in a salad for a punch of nutrients.
What Our Residents Have To Say
My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!
I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.
Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.
I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.
I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.
