Some maaaahvelous news….our Hardworking Honeybees have provided us with a crop of Nectar From The Bee Gods (aka raw honey)! OUR HONEY IS NOW AVAILABLE, BUT IT WON’T LAST LONG SO IF YA SNOOZE YA LOOZE!!!. It is yummy-niciousness in a bottle and fabulous health wise for you. If ya never had raw honey ya know not what ya miss!

Just a reminder….WE WILL NO LONGER BE SHIPPING HOSTAS, PEONIES, AND DAYLILIES. Last year I reluctantly made the decision to discontinue the shipping side of the business as it has become too difficult to maintain the walk-in side and the shipping side, and I don’t want quality and service to suffer. I came to the conclusion that I unfortunately can’t do it all! WE ALSO WILL NOT BE DIGGING HOSTAS OR PEONIES THIS YEAR EITHER, SORRY.

And please remember….if you are coming for anything special, CALL OR EMAIL FIRST!!!!!!!!!! Just because it is listed on the website does not mean it is currently available. I do not yet know when I can/will be digging hostas and daylilies, but you can give me a possible wish list. I will hopefully be updating my Hosta, Peony and Daylily pages soon (after the veggie rush).


Soon we will Update our 2022 Annuals/Perennials Page

In the meantime, check out our NEW ANNUALS/PERENNIALS 2021 page, TOMATO page (over 100 varieties available….I know, a wee bit over the top, plus I finally updated my new top ten-ish list), PEPPER page, our egg-celent EGGPLANT page, our Mountains of Marvelous MELON page (with a new introduction), our Gobs of Crispy and Quirky CUKES page, our Herds of Handy HERBS page, our Sassy and Stupendous SQUASH/ZUCCHINIpage, and our miscellaneous (but of course “gotta-have”) OTHER VEGGIESpage.

I am soooooo looking forward to hearing from and seeing (safely) my precious Plantheads! PLEASE take care of yourselves, and remember to be extra kind. We so very much appreciate and are grateful for your support and patronage. Chins Up, Trowels Out, and Smiles On….Stay Safe and Think Green!!!
