Vegetables

Growing your own vegetables is both fun and rewarding.  Most store-bought vegetables can’t match the flavor of homegrown. Vine-ripened tomatoes have fuller flavor,  Cucumbers are sweet and refreshing, Leaf lettuce is crisp, Basil is fresh and aromatic. The list goes on and on. Whether you’re a gardening novice or planting a garden for the first time we have a large variety of vegetable plants for all skill sets.  Please don’t hesitate to ask us questions before you purchase and we will be more than happy to guide you in the right direction.

All our vegetable plants are grown without pesticides.  Come early for the largest selection.
