Asparagus Crowns are here!

March 8, 2017

asparagusJersey Knight asparagus crowns arrived March 8, 2017. There are 20-25 crowns in a bundle. One bundle is typically enough for a backyard bed. Give them a permanent, very sunny home in your yard because these can last about fifty years.

Now and early spring are the perfect times to build your bed and plant them.

Print out our asparagus sheet for instructions, and stop by and see us soon!

Strawberries are here!

February 17, 2017

Strawberries are one of the most heavily sprayed crops, always listed near the top of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ foods lists. The best way to know what you’re eating is to grow your own!
If you like strawberries, plan ahead. Plant them this winter and spring for harvesting next spring and during the several springs thereafter.
Sweet Charlie (a june-bearer) is the only variety we were able to source for 2017. Available in bundles of 10 bare-root plants for $4.99/bundle.
