Our Gardens

Stay tuned…
This page will grow along with the plants when they start to germinate in January.

In the meantime, feel free to browse our gallery which shows the development of our gardens at this location: Gallery

These are the Tomatoes we have selected for the garden in 2018

We take pride in our gardens

It is our philosophy not to use chemical fertilisers or pesticides, choosing instead to use a mixture of compost and a lot of elbow grease. In 2017 we had a very tasty year with 100 varieties of Tomatoes (most of them heritage), Sweet Potatoes failed, but our Potatoes did well, Peppers (sweet and hot, in all colours and sizes), Cucumbers, Peas, Beans, Kale, Eggplant, Summer and Winter Squash, Okra, Broccolini, Brussel Sprouts, and Garlic.  We also cultivate Rhubarb, Black Raspberries, Ground Cherries, Blackberries, and Yellow Raspberries. In 2018 we will do it all over again with the addition of a few new heirloom tomatoes & other yummy surprises.

We know it is impossible to grow everything, so we depend on a network of local farms to fill in the gaps. We bring in local Strawberries from the beginning of June all the way to October, Raspberries from July to September, as well as Wild and Domestic Blueberries from August to September. We also have a driver that goes to the Niagara Region 3 times per week to bring back tree-ripened fruits as they are in season: Cherries, Plums, Peaches, Nectarines, and Pears. Corn starts the middle of July and is brought in fresh-picked each morning. We have an organic supply of Carrots and Beets, and a regular supply of Onions, Potatoes, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, and all the salad fixings you could imagine throughout the entire growing season.

Veggie Trail Garlic

We will be planting our garlic later in October for the 2018 season. There will be a mixture of Red Russian, Bogatyr, Duganski, and a little bit of Music.  We expect the scapes will come off mid-June along with some green garlic and garlic shalots. The bulk of the garlic for the 2018 season should come out of the ground in late July… Good things come to those who wait.
