Perennials are plants that bloom year after year. Our perennials ad summer color to your yard, are very hardy, and are easy to grow. 

 

We also feature roses:

We offer old roses like Blaze and Cecil Brunner, and modern English roses. All of our roses grow on their own roots which makes them hardier and perform better than grafted roses. 

 

We we also offer local produce:

What are quince?

IMAGE.JPG

Here is an unusual fruit: quince is shaped like a pear, has fuzzy skin like a peach, and has yellow flesh that turns pink when cooked. 

 

Quince is quite hard when raw so is usually eaten cooked. The flavor is tart like a lemon but distinctively unique.

We use this fruit many different ways. When frying potatoes we add a little quince for flavor and tang. We cook roast pork with quince and onions. We also cook it with water, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Because quince is very high in pectin, this cooks to a marmalade that we use for quince tart or on top of cheese cake.

quince are available u-pick for $.75 a pound or at our store for $1.25.
