Spring Open House
Saturday April 13th

Jerry will be smoking his famous pork loins for Open House--call the shop to reserve yours!  Stay tuned...we are giving 2 away that day, too!!!  We will have BBQ plates at lunch time for purchase with Paula's homemade barbecue beans and mac n' cheese.

April is here and the nursery is starting to fill up with gorgeous plants!  We are growing quite a few things and we are getting several shipments from local growers each week now.  We will have a great variety of vegetable and herb plants that are grown here or very close by.  If you don't see what you are looking for be sure to ask us--it may be coming soon!

The giftshop is full and there are several new vendors with some really nice items to browse thru while you enjoy your ice cream.

Come see us!

Are you interested in having a raised bed garden? We have teamed up with Super Sod to simplify the experience! You can plant herbs, vegetables and ornamentals in the beds without having to deal with the heavy, red clay that is so prevalent in Georgia. Visit their website for more information:
