2016 Vegetable Inventory

2016 Vegetable Inventory:

Our 2016 vegetable inventory is here! This means that you can start to plan your garden and know what you will be able to get! Not sure what the marks on the chart mean? Crossed out signifies vegetables we no longer carry. Yellow highlighted varieties are new for the 2016 year.

How do we choose what we grow?

We look for varieties that not only tolerant but thrive in our Lancaster County area. Beyond that, like you, we love vegetables with good yields and flavor. Our stock is chosen for the backyard and urban gardener. We also choose our vegetables with the canner in mind and we try your mother’s and grandmother’s favorites that you know and love.

What is available now?

March brings out the cold-tolerant vegetables, like lettuce and greens. The early summer vegetables will be available in April. Not sure what you want or where to begin? Ask our employees and they will recommend varieties suited to your garden’s needs. Perhaps you may want to try a new variety or a new method this year like square foot gardening (See an example here). You can ask our employees for more info and advice about both of these things.

    I’m interested in organic vegetable plants. I’m hoping you will offer them for spring planting.

      Thanks for the ? Sharon. We are not Certified Organic-however any sprays needed to be used on our veggies IS ONLY Organic. Have a wonderful day and thanks again!

    Thinking about driving out for your perennial sale on the 14th. Will you have veggie plants then or am I too early?

      You’ll be right on time. All of our cold tolerant vegetables are out now. We are beginning to release our early summer line as the weeks go on.

      We do have decent selection of veggies right now. Many cold tolerant items like lettuce and kale etc. We do not have nearly all of our tomatoes, peppers or zucchini ready though. A few varieties of peppers and tomatoes are for sale-but not nearly all of the varieties we will have in a few weeks. Have a great night!
