We’re OPEN Saturdays 9-3

always

farm view (from upstairs) with huge storm clouds

We had quite an exciting storm on Tuesday- huge dark (some greenish – yikes!) clouds, WILD winds and some rain (not as much as we hoped for… but a good start). Luckily we had our awesome helper Jaqueline here to help shuttle flats of basil plants back into the greenhouse and our 10 baby chicks into the house, just in the nick of time before the rain started and everything loose in the yard went flying through the air!! We had just spent the day transplanting our large tomato plants (about 600 of them) into 5″ pots, and most were okay, some just need a little recovery time from the wind. We were very fortunate.

We have many plants for sale -ready and safe to plant out – $3/ 6-pack

strawberries – in 3″ peat pots $1

veggies (3 types of broccoli, 3 or 4 types of kale, brussel sprouts, collards, lettuce (at least 6 different kinds and a mix)

herbs (culinary and medicinal – chamomile, calendula, chives, motherwort  – so far)

flowers (pineapple sage is huge ~ we had a hummingbird visit  today already!)

and more growing every day!

Basically we grow and sell most veggie, flower and herb plants~ zinnias to asters, thyme, oregano, chives, lemon balm, ashwaganda, rosemary, tomatoes, summer lettuce mixes… and LOTS more.

So for food

We have rhubarb, onion greens, scallions, leeks, beautiful heads of lettuce that keep wonderfully well, lacinato (tuscan) kale, some spinach, small bunches of fresh herbs (thyme, oregano, spearmint, peppermint and lemon balm) and chives.

Also we have Organic Olive Oil from my extended family in Greece – large tins for $36 each, which is our cost for now (they are not charging shipping as a promotional thing). But it is DELICIOUS and fresh, not a bit rancid… really wonderful. Hardly any words or marketing junk on the tin also, which I like… simple! Just good stuff.

Next week we’ll have 2 lb. wheels of goat gouda cheese from Blue Ledge Farm in Vermont. YUM. We use it on everything because we don’t eat much cow cheese – melts well and tastes amazing.

For medicine makers:

Come harvest our lemon balm and chamomile for a calming and delicious herbal glycerite (tincture made with vegetable glycerine instead of alcohol) or spearmint / peppermint for a digestive-helping glycerite. I will give you a quick lesson if you need one and do have vegetable glycerine for sale… bring a clean pint jar! Also motherwort is almost ready, and mullein leaf  is ready for tincturing. I hope to have herbal video lessons on here at some point…

Hope to see you soon!
