Peaches are in!

The earlier peaches are smaller and cling style.  They are FAR superior to the ones in the grocery store with great flavor--and always as local as we can get.

As the season progresses, they get bigger and better!  The freestones
arrive toward the end of June, typically, with our peak season happening
in July.  Those are the peaches that are so juicy you have to catch the drips coming off your chin!  The season tapers off around Labor Day each year.

The nursery is full of wonderful blooming plants. Hydrangeas to perennials to annual color and even some herbs have joined the party.  Come see what's blooming this week at 'The Orchard' and enjoy some ice cream while you're strolling thru.

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:
