Since both my husband and I started out with education in the sciences, we hope to share a little "non-intrusive" science education with you. We both believe it is important to know "why" and "how" and we hope you enjoy your visit.


Expected Garden Treasures for 2010

Disclaimer: While we attempt to have produce available from everything we plant and take as many measures as possible to prevent crop losses from "acts of God", we can not guarantee the availability of any crop we plant.

News/Events

  • August 2010 - Garden treasures are ripening: Flashy Trout's Back Lettuce, Spinach, Sugar Star Snap Peas, Buttercup Squash, Spaghetti Squash, Slicing Cucumbers, Pickling Cucumbers, Green Beans, Fennel, Carrots, Collard Greens, Tomatoes, and Leeks are all being harvested regularly. We have a new item to add to our shopping list: Pickle Kits - purchase a quart jar pickle kit and receive the pickling cucumbers free. The cost is only $5.00. Follow the recipe included in the kit and have fresh, crunchy, delicious pickles in as little as 4 days. Choose from sweet or sour pickles. No canning equipment is necessary.
  • See our advertisement on HotFrog.com
  • We had an interesting series of events that resulted in a shorter growing season for 2009. The good news is we have resolved the matter and are planning our next season. We have had several produce requests from customers including collard greens and more fresh spinach. If you have a request for something you would like to have us grow for you and your family, now is the time to contact us.
  • The artichokes, blueberries, strawberry plants, and cherry trees are being over-wintered. There are several juvenile apple and pear trees on the property which produced some fruits last fall. We will be pruning these to allow for better growth for Fall 2010. The herbs have done very well being indoors all winter. The German Thyme, Apple Mint, Spearmint, Peppermint, Catnip, Epazote, Oregano, and Sage are all growing well.
  • We have started seeds indoors for our 2010 growing season. These include Flashy Trout's Back Lettuce and Erste Ernte Spinach.
  • We have more acreage now and are experimenting with grain crops. We have purchased Hard Red Wheat which is good for making whole wheat bread, pastries and other baked goods. The sprouts can be harvested for salads and for use in juices. We are excited to try this new grain!
