New for 2023

Hanging Baskets with Thunbergia

We will offer multiple combinations of large baskets with trailing Thunbergia like those pictured at the right.  They are showstoppers and look fantastic on a porch or planted in an urn.  Photos by: Heather Hudson


Many varieties that we add are at the request of customers.  This year we added Coyote. We grew it in our 2022 trials and then had a couple customers ask for it.  It is FANTASTIC!  Super sweet and one of the most prolific currant style tomatoes we have grown.  The plant is huge and produced until the end of the season.  It pairs well with 'Waimea' for a great presentation in a salad.


We also added in Nebraska Wedding from our trials.  WOW!  What a beautiful bright orange, meaty and flavorful slicing tomato.  In the 1800s Nebraska couples would receive these seeds to start their farms.  It is classified as determinate for a shorter harvest season but our plant produced for a few months. 


The most interesting addition this year is Grandma Kirksey which is named for Willie Jane (Pulley) Kirksey, who received the variety during the Great Depression and grew the peppers in her flower beds.  It is an open pollinated heirloom with a medium heat and has beautiful purple foliage.

We are expanding our herb program this year offering herb planter events and herb programs at the farm. We will feature several events for Mothers' Day. 

Corporate Wellness Program with Herbs.  Employees learn about cooking healthy with herbs then choose 3 herbs to plant in a container to take home.  Great way to show teams how much they are appreciated. Some healthcare plans reimburse for this program. These events can be held at the farm or at the company location.

Gardening for Pollinators

Our ecosystem relies on bees, butterflies and birds to pollinate plants.  With the increased use of pesticides and more limited habitants due to development pollinator populations are on the decline.  Pollinators impact everything from our food supply to lumber for construction.  

We can each do our part by adding plants that are native, non-invasive pollinator attracting plants to to our gardens and landscapes.  


We are featuring American Beauties and other pollinator attracting plants at the shop.
