Happy Easter 2014

The greenhouse is full to capacity.  Hundreds of hanging baskets, perennials, vegetable transplants are quickly becoming ready for sale as the last frost date has arrived.

We transplanted hundred of sweet corn transplants on black plastic to provide you the earliest sweet corn we possibly could.  These were planted April 11.

A close up of the sweet corn babies.

Planting bell and yummy peppers on black plastic.  It may seem like a never ending task, and it is.  Notice the 7,000 onions in the right of the photo.  We couldn't do it without the great help that we have.
Browder's Fresh Pickins is offering a novel opportunity this year to reward it's customers.  For only $15 years you can become a member of BFP which rewards you with 10% off all purchases for the rest of 2014.  This include everything from plants to produce.  In addition the first 50 members to sign up will get a free "We're Small Potatoes" t-shirt absolutely free.

Lamb's ear is a perennial favorite.

There's that great help I was talking about.  This was at the Smithfield Farmer's Market.  It really is one of the better markets in Hampton Roads. 

We've got tea lover's bowls with 6 kinds of tea's including 3 mints, chamomile, stevia, and lemon verbena and we've got an "Italiano" herb bowl with basil, thyme, oregano, dill, chives, and parsley.  Both bowls are on sale for $10 each while supplies last.

Browder's has Strawberries

We just planted a tenth acre of strawberries.
So keep us in mind when you're looking for fresh, sweet berries in the spring.

July at the Market and in the Garden



Elephant garlic

Try cream cheese stuffed "yummy" peppers wrapped in bacon and grilled to perfection.



Our sweet potato crop is looking great.  Should be about 50 more days until harvest.
 
 Onion harvest was a success.  We sold 600 lbs. to 5 Points Farm Market in Norfolk just last week.


These Big Beef tomatoes are absolutely delicious!
 
Amanda does such a great job arranging bouquets.

I think the display is about to bust out.





Special thanks to all of our valued customers.  We couldn't do it without YOU!
