Produce

In addition to vegetable seedlings for gardeners to grow at home, we grow a few things that many home gardeners do not have the space for. Our produce is known for its quality, superior flavor, and ecological methods:

  • Heirloom varieties that are time-tested performers
  • No fossil fuels used in production
  • No fertilizers used on the soils or plants
  • No herbicides to kill weeds, cultivation only
  • Low till means we only cultivate the soil deep enough to cut/kill weeds, NO PLOWING

Garlic
‘Inchelium Red’
Originating from the Colville Indian Reservation in Inchelium, WA, this superior tasting garlic can have light purple stripes and blotches making it beautiful and great tasting. It even has been recognized by the Rodale Institute for its flavor.

Watermelon
‘Yellow Flesh Moon & Stars’
This rare heirloom was once grown widely in Georgia not even a century ago, and was even grown by my mamaw on this very land. Medium to large size melons have a “moon and stars” speckled pattern on the dark rind, rather than the “typical” stripes of modern hybrids. The yellow-orange flesh is soft and creamy with a mild sweetness. Keeps quite well when refrigerated.
Available July – September
Sweet Potatoes
‘Georgia Jet’
This heirloom of unknown origin (though believed to originate in Georgia) predates the now popular Covington and Beauregard varieties. Georgia Jet has a pinkish orange-red skin and a deep orange flesh. Unlike many sweet potato varieties, Georgia Jet is not shown to have originated from a University, making this a true heirloom variety. It is great for baking, and will hold up well in pies, sauces, ferments, and puddings!
Available October – December
Sweet Potatoes
‘Virginia Red’
There is not information found for this variety, leading me to believe that it was mislabeled, misnamed, or both. It may be one of many true red varieties, but may also be ‘Georgia Red’ or others that are called “red” even though there is little red in the coloration of the tubers. More information will be provided upon harvest and examination.

Winter Squash
‘North Georgia Candy Roaster’
Candy Roasters are a type of sweet squash originally developed by post-Mississippian tribes. The ‘North Georgia Candy Roaster’ was renamed by the white-man following the encroachment of the State of Georgia in the mid-1800s, but has been grown in this region for over 500 years – long before the European Conquest. It is a beautiful, large, and sweet fruit, sometimes weighing up to 15 pounds! Peach colored skin with blue highlights on the blossom end make this squash stand out and its bright orange colored flesh is reminiscent of a pumpkin. It is so sweet, sugar is not needed in pie and casserole dishes; the Cherokee use it in a corn-bean-squash soup for winter consumption rich in nutrients and flavor. This variety will keep refrigerated for up to NINE MONTHS making it one of the best storage crops in existence. Up until the mid-1900s this variety was widely grown and eaten by Appalachian families, not the pumpkin, until commercial agriculture largely replaced community self-reliance.
