Try them all and find out what kind of tomato person you really are.
Rosemary $2.00 per Bundle
Rosemary leaves are used as a flavoring in foods, such as stuffing and roast lamb, pork, chicken, and turkey. Fresh or dried leaves are used in traditional Mediterranean cuisine. They have a bitter, astringent taste and a characteristic aroma which complements many cooked foods. Herbal tea can be made from the leaves. When roasted with meats or vegetables, the leaves impart a mustard-like aroma with an additional fragrance of charred wood that goes well with barbecued foods.
Thyme $2.00 per Bundle
Fresh thyme is commonly sold in bunches of sprigs. A sprig is a single stem snipped from the plant. It is composed of a woody stem with paired leaf or flower clusters spaced 1⁄2 to 1 inch apart. A recipe may measure thyme by the bunch, or by the sprig, or by the tablespoon or teaspoon.
Depending on how it is used in a dish, the whole sprig may be used, or the leaves removed and the stems discarded. Usually, when a recipe specifies “bunch” or “sprig”, it means the whole form; when it specifies spoons, it means the leaves. It is perfectly acceptable to substitute dried for whole thyme.
Salsa (HOT) $7.50 Per Pint
Our Farm Fresh Salsa is made from the freshest ingredients grown by our farm or by like minded farmers. All products are local, organic, and freshly harvested. This seasonal product has become a staple of summer.
Arugula $4.00 per 4 ounce bag
Although typically arugula is best in the Spring and Fall seasons, there are heat tolerant varieties that grow well in the heat. This peppery herb can be used to spice up and add flavor to just about any dish.

Stevia is A wonderful sugar supplement. 30 to 150 times sweeter than sugar and has 0 calories.
Arugula Microgreens $3.00 per 2 ounce bag

Pea Shoots $3.00 per 2 ounce bag
Nearly all leafy green vegetables are very nutritious and low in calories, and pea shoots are no exception. They’re a good source of beta carotene, vitamin C, folate, and fiber. Pea shoots are the leaves and tendrils of pea plants, usually sugar snap peas. But they’re so much more than that. With their celery-green leaves and wispy curlicues. Pea Shoots taste like sugar snap peas — refreshingly crisp and sweet.
Cucumbers $1.50 per cucumber
There are three main varieties of cucumber: slicing, pickling, and seedless. We have 2 types of pickling: a seedless and an all purpose slicer that pickles well.
Summer Squash $3.00/pound
Always a very popular fruit in the summer months. We grow 3 different cultivars of zucchini and 2 of pattypan. They range from bright yellow to light green. All equally flavorful as we choose to harvest our summer squash at a very small and tender age.
Jalapeno $3.00 per pint
The jalapeño is a medium-sized chili pepper pod type cultivar of the species Capsicum annuum. A mature jalapeño chili is 5–10 cm long and hangs down with a round, firm, smooth flesh of 25–38 mm wide. It can have a range of pungency, with Scoville heat units of 3,500 to 8,000.
Red Noodle Beans $4.00 per pound
Famous in Southern China and uncommon elsewhere, these beautiful beans can grow up to 24″! Red pods when ripe, with a sweet and tender flavor when cooked. Similar to green beans.
Okra $3.00 per pint
Okra, also known as gumbo or ladies’ fingers, is a warm-season vegetable. It is a good source of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. It contains a sticky juice that people use to thicken sauces.
Remember When $15.00 (2 oz bottle with dropper)
Remember When contains the powerful combination of ginkgo and gotu kola leaf, rosemary, peppermint, and ginger. The research behind gotu kola leaf suggests that it improves both learning and memory by increasing antioxidant levels in the blood. The extract from ginkgo leaves is used as a dietary supplement for many conditions, including dementia, eye problems, intermittent claudication (leg pain caused by narrowing arteries), tinnitus, and other health problems. Rosemary, on the other hand, reduces the oxidative damage to the brain with it’s powerful antioxidant activity. And let’s not forget ginger that acts as an anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory property is important since many brain disorders including depression, anxiety, ADHD, brain fog, and Alzheimer’s are linked to chronic inflammation of the brain.
