As a passionate locavore and advocate of small businesses, I've purchased all seed from local, seed-saving companies with very few exceptions. The hops and ginger will come from Hawaii and the Northwest, but the cover crop seed was sourced out of SC. No GMO's here, only pure varieties and organic when possible. All fruit, vegetable, herbs and flowers were chosen for heat and humidity tolerance, flavor, interest and beauty! Can't wait to see these lovelies. It's a fresh take on the usual suspects, but the usual suspects are in the mix as well!
I'm really excited to see what happens with the subtropical fruit I'm growing. It's definitely going to be an experiment in trellising, over-wintering and length of season/harvest. Fruit is heavy in vitamins, antioxidants and full of flavor...tiny nutrient bombs! I am proud grow a nice variety of fruit locally, so that I can provide my customers with berries picked at the height of their nutritional value and peak sweetness. I also plan on dehydrating fruit and veggies alike to keep waste down and nutrient value up year round!
It may take awhile for these ladies to flower and produce, but it will be worth the wait!!
