What I Grow

The things I grow enough to sell are in bold. I grow mostly heirloom varieties for flavor.

Summer

  • Asparagus- green & purple. I just have five rows but hope it will start producing more so I can sell a little
  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Coneflowers
  • Cucumber
  • Garlic– This year I have 8 varieties of heirloom garlic to harvest. I have mostly hardneck with 1 or 2 softneck varieties
  • Eggplant
  • Gourds– good for crafts, birdhouses, or rootstock for grafting to cucurbits
  • Ground Cherries
  • Luffa– makes a great sponge or soap
  • Marigolds
  • Melons– I grow watermelons, cantaloupe (muskmelons), and French melons. I graft these to bottle gourds sometimes.
  • Muscadine Grapes- old vines provide some excellent sweet grapes for a little jam making. Two varieties.
  • Peppers– sweet ones and hot ones. Good for canning a little salsa. Mostly heirloom
  • Onions– yellow and red
  • Snap Peas- generally don’t make it to the kitchen. Should grow more.
  • Sunflowers
  • Irish Potatoes– French Fingerling, Purple, Blue, Carola, German Butterball
  • Squash– summer squash and winter squash. Usually heirloom.
  • Tomatoes– MANY varieties of heirlooms. I graft these to get good fruit in spite of your tough growing conditions.

Fall & Winter

  • Beets- red and gold
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots- all colors
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce

I am going to grow more in fall, winter, and early spring now that I have my double layer high tunnel build completed.
