Small Space Vegetable Gardening Demonstration

Come out in the spring to see how to put a small space to work for you at our demonstration garden. We have put in some winter and early spring plants. Our small space grows enough broccoli, lettuce, mesclun, and spinach for our family and others. Our broccoli grew 11” heads last year.

We also grow enough cucumbers, peppers, squash, and tomatoes to keep us supplied while they are in season. These vegetables are grown around our water tank and pump house in raised beds, straw bales, and a “Square Foot” garden. Come learn how to prepare soil, make amendments, and mulch plants.

We have cold hardy spring vegetables including broccoli, Russian Kale, collards, cabbage, kohlrabi, leaf lettuce (red and green), Swiss chard, mescclun mix, Buttercrunch lettuce, Romaine lettuce, and spinach ready for sell.

We also have some of our summer vegetables include pickling cucumbers, slicing cucumbers, straight neck squash, crook neck squash, zucchini, red, yellow, and green bell peppers, hot and sweet banana peppers, cayenne peppers, jalapeƱo peppers, many varieties of tomatoes, okra, egg plant, 5 varieties of watermelon, and 3 varieties of cantaloupe.
