Beetles !

Most of the world's beetles are 'good bugs' - they act as predators or their larva do, eating thousands of 'bad bugs.' Here's some tips on growing banks of native grasses, which provide Good Beetles with housing and protection.

Alternatives to Growing Spinach

You may have tried growing Spinach and found it frustrating - Spinach can be tricky when temperatures fluctuate like they do here in NY State.


And that's why we have so many "Spinach Alternatives" for sale at our Plant Sale! The "Spinach Alternatives" are tasty and healthy and MUCH easier to grow than Spinach!

We are currently working on updating all of our Plant Lists for 2019 Please visit again soon! Buttons colored light green are updated! 

Figs - a great "alternative" fruit!

Figs are fun and easy to grow. They do need to be brought indoors for the winter though! I grow figs in large pots in the greenhouse and usually end up with a plentiful amount of figs. We have a variety of types of figs for sale at our Plant Sales. None require the wasp-pollinator; they are all self-pollinating. 


Summer Squash for every local garden - Info on growing, harvesting, and eating. And info on our collection of varieties that we are so proud of and are so happy to share! 

Please be aware that we are a small farm and that we cannot grow a ton of everything. But we do make the best effort possible to decide what to grow a lot of! But unfortunately, we end up selling out of certain things, sometimes at our first weekend. 


Also, nature has the last word here, and sometimes despite our best efforts, things don't germinate and other things get eaten. So, please take that into consideration while viewing these lists. And please feel free to let me know - especially if you are traveling a distance - that you're particularly interested in a certain variety!
