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)

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)
