Griggles and Figs

Griggles and Figs

Figs on Sale, Figs for All

The season is sliding into shorter days and cooler nights, but those last few intense heat waves ripened up the fig crop beautifully. We put up nets for the first time this year, and we have an outrageous fig crop to show for it.

So figs are on sale this Saturday at the farm stand - $5/pint

If you have never had a fresh fig before, stop by and ask for samples!

This workshop will provide a hands-on demonstrations on how to winter prune your roses. We will also discuss general plant health, diseases, pests, and fertilization.

Farm Stand : Roses Still on Sale!

Our farm stand has been a true joy this year, a time to sell but also a time to catch up with friends and neighbors. We are open on Saturdays 10 am - 2 pm. We still have a ton of potted roses for $15-20. Fall is a perfect time to plant them for deep winter roots and spring blooms. Stop by and say hi!


If you have made it to the end of this post, you might be wondering what griggles are. Well I  am here to tell you about my new favorite word. The definition is:
small or inferior apples left on a tree after picking.

What a great word!

I have also repurposed it to collectively refer to our new kittens. Their first names are apple varieties of course. Meet Pippin and Hudson, the not-feral-any-longer additions to our farm family.

Still with me? Yay. Here are a few things that delighted me recently.
