This is 'San Michele'- a beautiful Italian cabbage variety that does very well here.


IEggplants, peppers, tomatoes and basil grow well in our hoophouse during our short summer season.

We include a variety of flowers and herbs along with our perennials- this diversity increases the number and variety of microbes that live in our soil.

We make our own compost from garden debris, barn hay and manure; it plays an important part in maintaining our soil fertility
