When we bought our house a year ago, it had an enormous 2400 square foot garden space that had been severely neglected for years. Once we cleaned it up and tilled it, we noticed (about this time last year) little crowns poking up through the soil on either side of the huge bed. Turns out … More Asparagus… Do you grow it?
I would love to hear from you! Wondering how viable it would be to assume I could sell any vegetable seedlings (other than lettuce, because of course I know you want that!) much past early July. Would you want help planting a fall crop? Tell me in the comments!
It’s finally done: Nikoli and I got married last weekend! As soon as the paperwork is completed for changing my last name, we will apply for our business license and get the ball rolling on Veggie Ventures. I know from my work at local garden centers that you want my services. I can help you … More Ready to Start!

Our bid on a house has been accepted! There is some work we need to do and it will be a few months before we close, but if all goes well we will be moving to Killingly, CT in spring. I’m so excited! For the moment, because our residence will be changing to a different … More Updates on Starting the Business
