Gardening is an activity with a multiple returns for our effort. Being able to be out in the fresh air, planting, nurturing, and helping plants grow, and enjoying the different colors in the garden are all part of having a garden. But, being able to produce some of the finest and freshest vegetables for our own table, or to share with others, is what make a home garden so special.
As you plan your garden, consider a variety to use as fresh, and/or to can, preserve, for freeze for use long after the harvest has ended. Having homemade pasta sauce made from tomatoes, onions, peppers, and herbs from your garden is great at harvest time. In the dead of winter, that same sauce is really special, as it brings back all of the fresh tastes of the garden many months later. Plan your planting for fresh enjoyment and remember to plant some extra to preserve for use until your next harvest is ready.
Brenckle’s offers a wide variety of plants for your garden and we also fresh produce from many of these same varieties when in season.
