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.
- 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.
- Rye/Wheat Combination
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
- 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.
Green Globe Artichokes
- Deep green flower buds with a hint of purple. Hearts are thick and flavorful.
- 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.
- Star of David Okra
- Tasty fruit used in many middle eastern dishes. Coat with cornmeal for frying or use in gumbo!
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.
- 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.
