School is just about out for summer! And before you or kids head for the beach (or baseball practice) don't forget to pick up something for his/her favorite teacher. Just a little thank you for all their hard work throughout the year. We have local gifts starting at $5! Stop by today for a gift, or just to say HELLO! We would love to see you! Happy Summer!
It's that time of year when friends visit looking for their favorite vegetables to add to their home gardens (one of our favorite times of year). Lettuce, tomatoes, eggplants & herbs! What to grow, what not to grow? Try something new or stick with the standard? We can help you with all of these questions and more. For under $12 you can leave Fresh & Fancy Farms with vegetable and herb plants that will provide fresh produce all summer long. Here are some shots of our vegetables - come visit us today and we will help you plan your vegetable & herb garden!
Spring is right around the corner. And in growing, every day, drop and degree matters! So a lot of our time now will be spent taking care of our tiny plants in the greenhouse. We will be sure to feed them the right amount of water and make sure they are at the temperature that makes them happy! Some plants (like marigolds) are hardier so being in slightly cooler temperature doesn't bother them unlike other plants that may freeze.
Recently we planted hundreds of tiny plugs into larger plots so they can start spreading their roots! Below are some photos of the little guys from lavender to apple mint. Stay tuned for updates...here's to a happy spring! Enjoy!
Summer is winding down and we are headed straight for fall. But before we get ourselves too excited about crisp pumpkins and colorful mums we are going to enjoy what’s left of the world’s warmest season. Here are three things we are going to hold onto before the leaves begin to change. 1. Fresh herbs One of our favorite things is to grow fresh herbs. Sage, rosemary, basil, oregano, you name it we grow it. If you have enough space indoors for colder months, bring your herbs indoors. If not, dry them and use them for your fall and winter cooking. Later this month we will have an herb drying “how to” so stay tuned.
2. Homegrown vegetables It’s about that time when your vegetables are in their prime! Six cucumbers here, 12 tomatoes there, you have an over abundance and soon it will be winding down so enjoy them! There is nothing more exciting than harvesting homegrown vegetables so don’t let anything go to waste, jar some salsa or pickle those cucumbers!
3. Final blooms Currently at the farm we are offering our hanging baskets for $10. Yes, we said it, $10 buckaroos! The flowers are still blooming and are sure to brighten any yard. Don’t take those final annual blooms for granted. Sit back, relax and enjoy the flowers!
