Oh, golly!  

Our growing season has come to an end: 


October 18, 2020

7:00 p.m. 

will be our last day for the stand to be open. 

With the cold, wet spring we had, we were off to a late start opening to the public.  Several cool crops didn't make it and our winter squashes didn't produce as well as we would have liked, including our pumpkins and butternut squash.  However, warm weather crops kept the stand full of a wide variety of awesome veggies, green beans, cucumbers, red/green cabbages, lettuce, four varieties of potatoes, corn, a variety of summer squash, green/bulb onions, cherry/beefsteak tomatoes, celery, green peppers, eggplant, beets, the world's ugliest and tastiest carrots, winter squashes, including acorn, spaghetti, delicata, some herbs, garlic, pumpkins, gourds.  

We discovered a new variety of potato, Solar Gold.  If you liked the creaminess of our Clavellas (2019),  Solar Gold is just as creamy.  Solar Gold sold out, so we didn't save any to try to store over the winter.    

Lots of big plans/goals for 2021. (Including blogging more than once!  Arrgghh  Believe it or not, these days weeding is more fun for me than sitting at the computer. Plus, the product in the stand changes so quickly it was tough to keep up with Mom Nature.)  This winter hoping to finish a hard cover greenhouse that will stand up to the wind and get to work on our Barn restoration. 

Cover crop is planted and the rest of the gardens will be put to bed shortly.  Have a wonderful holiday season.   If you visited our stand this year, thank you for your support!  Much appreciated.  Stay safe!  Looking forward to spring, 2021 (and hopefully an open house/garden tour/product samples.   Don't forget to VOTE!  Make it a great day!  Doug and Char
