The Spring 2015 selection of Vegetable
and Herb plants will be our largest ever. There's a reason we
call it "insane" :)
We've added even more heirloom tomato
varieties, more peppers, heirloom Squash, Okra, and Eggplants,
among others, and a whole bunch more herbs, including culinary,
medicinal, and spiritual use varieties. We believe in staying
close to nature and grow our plants here focusing on non GMO varieties.
Our catch phase is "Just say no, to GMO."

If you are a truck farm or a community
garden or other commercial or non profit organization we offer
exceptional quality and commercially competetive pricing. We also
have decades of experience meeting the needs of the commercial
market. We do request large volume commercial orders be placed
to allow enough time for procurement and sowing of seed or propagation
of cutting to meet your requested ship date.
In most cases this lead time can
be several months. If interested drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

The Liberty for dummies page is a simple
refresher for all of us Americans that have forgotten what "liberty"
is really all about.
It's cute, has great music, and even
a kid can understand it. Some adults may be another story. :)
It's well worth the watch. I hope you find it as refreshing/entertaining/enlightening
as I. My highest compliments to the artist that constructed it.
The site is evolving. Rather than take
it down for "maintainance" the way many do I decided

Credit cards do nothing but suck BILLIONS of $ away from the working
class & small businesses every year. Who pays for the skymiles
and rewards? Your merchant, that's who. Those rewards are taken
electronically out of the merchant's portion of the sale when
the card is scanned.
God grant us the sereneity to accept
the things we cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things
we can, and the WISDOM to know the difference.
Serving the greater Cincinnati
Garden Market for four generations since 1896
We were at one time, perhaps the single
most comprehensive selection of perennials, annuals, trees, shrubs
and garden accessories in the region including tuned windchimes,
garden furniture, tools, fertilzers and water gardening supplies.
The unwillingness of garden consumers to buy plants in any significant
numbers in anything less than perfect weather, and then only willing
to pay what they did ten years ago while costs of operation skyrockted
forced us to shift focus towards the self sufficient organic method
food production of our past.
Our primary mission is now to provide
the plants, materials, and knowledge necessary for our customers
to take control of their own food supply.
"Teach a person to fish and they're
fed for life, teach them to garden and they can feed the whole
neighborhood!" Al Funke 2009
We look forward to a sustainable future
of healthy and bountiful harvests.
