Good News! If you cannot find parking in our driveway (it happens) you can park in the street at the back of our house. Our backdoor neighbor has graciously allowed our customers to walk through his yard. Please DO NOT PARK IN HIS YARD! If you come in through the back and don't see us, give us a call so that we don't miss you. It's going to be a great year!
Our plants are fertilized with steamed bone meal, worm castings, epsom salts, mycorrihzae, seaweed extract, fish fertilizer, kelp and alfalfa meal. We DO NOT use pesticides or herbcides.
We accept checks, cash and credit cards (minimum $20 purchase for credit cards please)
Plants We Are Offering This Year:
Tomatoes: We have 375 varieties this year, some very limited. We have some you won't find anywhere else unless you grow them.
Peppers: We are offering 126 different varieties, hot and sweet, plus superhots.
Vegetable Plants: Lettuce, and Cabbage for early planting.
Flower Plants: We have a LOT of flower plants. Some you won't find at the big box stores.
We have a standing invitation to each and every one of you to visit my garden. You will be amazed how I transformed one of our greenhouses into a sunny entertaining spot. Just call first. I kid my customers that they only visit when they want something! I’d love to share my garden with you.

Dates to Maturity
I changed actual days to a seasonal range since our weather is so unpredictable:
Very Early - 54 days or less
Early - 55-69 days
Mid-season - 70-84 days (most of them are mid-season)
Late Season - 85 or more days (late yes, but worth the real estate)

All good things must come to an end. We're closed until next season.
It has been a great season and we appreciate all of your business. If you have any questions, comments or better yet, pictures, we'd be happy to receive them.
The weather has been a roller coaster ride, hot one day and then, literally, NOT! It is time to plant but I would caution you to try and wait for a cool day or an overcast day to plant. The hot sun is not a kind to seedlings or newly planted plants. You could also fix up some type of cover, shade cloth or even a sheet. Be sure to water generously.

The tomato on the left is called " Pink Jazz". This one weighed 1.2 pounds. The purple peppers n the right are called "Islander" They run the color range from purple to red to cream and sometimes yellow gold.
We found this guy in the garden. It seems he took a little too much time trying to decide what variety he wanted to take home for his garden.
Well, there's always next year!
