Newer offerings this week are carrots and pumpkins... read more »

Summer Extended Week 3 - Fall, here we come!

Posted on September 13th, 2019
Fall is just around the corner and the temps are dropping! Earlier this week we covered over all the basil in the garden to make sure we didn't lose it.  Basil is very tender and is usually the first crop to succumb to the chillier evenings. We have frost fabric and our hoophouses to help us keep... read more »
