What we love and what thrives in Brooklyn

We are a Zone 6 garden.  What does that mean?  We have below freezing winters, scorching hot summers and a few feral cats in between which means our plants have to be tough.

Through trial and error we've found that if you plant what your New York ancestors did you'll probably be ok.  That being said we love to test new varieties to see what will take.  Stop by this summer to see our wide variety of Peppers, Hardy Kiwi and Strawberries that taste like bubblegum!

Thinking of starting a edible backyard oasis?  We love tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, sunflowers, eggplants and basil.  Plant a pot and stop by to share your bounty!  We love a good tomato success story!

**If you are planting directly in urban soil ALWAYS get the soil tested.
