What We Grow

Summer/Fall

Summer

Note the BIG CHANGE in hours!!

(see Hours)

Here's what we pick:
acorn squash cauliflower kale shallots tomatoes
artichokes Chinese cabbage kohlrabi shell beans watermelon
beets collards lettuces spaghetti squash wax beans
broccoli cucumbers melons summer squash zucchini
cabbage eggplant okra sweet corn  
buttercup squash green beans onions sweet peppers  
butternut squash herbs pak choi sweet potatoes  
carrots hot peppers pickling cukes swiss chard  
 
  • Many of the above are great for roasting or in soups & stews.
  • The winters squashes keep for months in a cool, dry place - a cellar or a garage- just keep them from freezing.
  • Don't refrigerate fresh tomatoes before they are cut so that they'll keep their flavor.
  • Tomatoes can be canned or frozen by various methods.
  • Beans & corn can be frozen easily. Also broccoli & cauliflower. Also peppers & swiss chard. There's also eggplant parmesan, and many recipes that do well in the freezer. When you want them, just heat to thaw & serve. You can be eating great all winter long.
  • We have attended numerous conferences over the winter to keep up with the latest in the industry. One of our pet projects this year is to try growing a few artichokes. There are always new products and different methods of growing things that Jim likes to try.

Fall

Many people are amazed that we still have sweet corn after Labor Day. As a matter of fact, we almost always have it until the stand closes for the season in mid-October. In addition to our own great variety of vegetables, we bring in fresh local apples & other fruits for a fall bounty.

Pick-Your-Own runs until frost. (see the pick-your-own page)
