Please Shop Locally and support your local farmers and growers

During our open season we will have fresh grown produce and herbs for sale. We will be opening mid June so please check back around the end of May for the availability dates and location.

We hope some of the information on this website will help you with your gardening, planting and harvesting. Since we are located in Ontario, Canada, we have tried to give information that will help Canadian gardeners.
In any case, after the last frost date is a safe bet for most planting. In Ontario the last frost date is May 24. By May 1 you could plant your seeds for leaf lettuces, arugula, spinach, chard and cool weather plants. On May 15 you could plant out your tomato and pepper seeds in a sunny location. It is always wise to check the soil temperature.
If there is a chance of frost, cover your seedlings with cloches, blankets, pots or plastic bottles, to make sure they are protected. I bring my tomato and pepper plants in at night until they are planted. I tested the white frost cloth in the greenhouse last few nights and it protected my seedlings from the frost. I draped it over using loose bricks but am going to set up a more permanent solution to make it easier.

Allium sativum is a perennial crop and is grown by methods similar to those used in growing onions.

The whole bulb is encased by several layers of white or mauve-tinged thin papery coverings.Several cultivar varieties exist from extra-large elephant garlic to small sized solo garlic. Allium oleraceum or field garlic is a wild, tall variety commonly grown in the United Kingdom. Unlike in onion, garlic flowers are sterile and therefore do not produce seeds. New plants generally are grown from implanting the individual sections of the bulb. ...more
