Natural, Wholesome Goodness









As you can see, these are not really miscellaneous crops.  They were placed here because we did not want to add a whole page for 1 or 2 vegetables of each family listed here.
  • Asparagus
    • Jersey Supreme Giant Asparagus 
      • Although we are planting this in 2009, it will not be available for harvest since asparagus takes 1-3 years to mature.  We expect to have supplies in 2010 or 2011.
  • Cereals/Grain
    • Rye/Wheat Combination
      • We plan on using this as a cover crop/green manure fall 2009, so no grain will be harvested for sale.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.
      • Because we use a lot of rye and wheat four for baking, we will be growing these grains in the future for processing into flour, cracked wheat, etc
    • Hard Red Wheat
      • .Especially good for making whole wheat flour for all your baking needs and desires.

  • Cynara
    • Green Globe Artichokes 
      • Deep green flower buds with a hint of purple.  Hearts are thick and flavorful.
  • Helianthus
    • American Giant Sunflower
      • Extremely large bright yellow flowers.  We will plant these intermixed with the corn to provide a wind-break on the north end of the main garden.
    • Giant Greystripe Sunflower
      • Huge golden flowers.  Seeds can be roasted for eating or used to feed birds.
  • Hibiscus
    • Star of David Okra
      • Tasty fruit used in many middle eastern dishes.  Coat with cornmeal for frying or use in gumbo!
  • Rheum 
    • Rhubarb 
      • This is an old variety producing short sweet stalks.  Use in pies or cook with butter and brown sugar for a delicious accompaniment to any meal.
  • Solanum
    • Baking Potatoes
      • Large firm, brown skinned variety.  Excellent for baking, mashed potatoes, or scalloped potatoes.
    • Imperial Black Beauty Eggplant
      • Purplish-black glossy skinned fruits.  Great in Eggplant Parmigiana or just roast on the grill and eat with a little olive oil.
    • Red Roasting Potatoes
      • Thin skinned red potatoes, best for roasting.   We have used these for mashing and hash browns with good results.
  • Zea (To avoid cross-pollination and the possibility of unfavorable outcomes, the corn will be grown in two separate gardens)
    • Japanese Hulless Popcorn
      • Tender popcorn has a delightful nutty flavor.  Hulls virtually disappear when popped.
    • Stowell's Evergreen Organic Corn
      • Sweet old fashion corn with tender white kernels.
