In late April, depending on availability & quality, we may have green beans, plums, potatoes, onions, romaine lettuce, Florida tomatoes, blueberries, strawberries & more. Local strawberries start mid to late May and prior to that we work hard to locate trusted strawberry & blueberry growers in southern states. Throughout much of May we are still offering our homegrown apples & lettuce & herb bowls. Herbs grown in our greenhouse along with an assortment of plants such as elderberry plants, tomatoes plants and a few others are available occasionally. We also now offer Granville Microgreens. According to one customer, “these are the best micro greens I have ever had”.
Ohio NATIVE plants are a specialty and are plentiful in the spring. For more information on our native plants, check out our Monarch Meadows website!
