You want to do the work of gardening, but you’re scratching your head instead of the soil.  Yes?  Well, then this is the perfect service for you!  We are gardening experts, let us help you.

We will schedule 6 appointments with you through the season and give you our undivided attention, answering your questions and teaching you about your garden.

Prior to our first scheduled appointment, we will collect soil samples and submit them to a lab for review.  Also, we will make one application of our Compost Tea to the soil.  At our first appointment, we will review the soil test results with you and guide you to success.  At subsequent appointments we will review your garden together, address challenges that you are experiencing, and we will teach you how to overcome these challenges.  If you would like to schedule additional appointments at our hourly coaching rate call our office to set up a time that is convenient for you.  We are your organic gardening experts.

Organic Vegetable or Herb Garden Planting

We will turn the garden soil as needed for planting purposes to prepare the planting bed.  We will install seed or young plants of the varieties that you choose below.  Based on your selections and size of garden, we will determine the quantities of each young plant or rows of seed that we plant.  We will supply all supports (trellis/tomato towers/etc.) unless you have these already.

Trellises and towers:

Vining plants like cucumber or pickle vines like to climb.  We will install vertical supports, making harvest time less strenuous, and extending the fruit production. Keeping the vines off of the ground allows airflow and decreases risk of disease- also extending fruit production and harvesting.

Soil amendments:

Purple Cow ® certified organic premium compost soil blend

Compost Tea

Other:  Depending on the results of your soil test, we may recommend additional soil amendments.  We will consult with you prior to any other additions.

Organic Vegetable or Herb Garden Care—

Your vegetable and/or herb garden requires regular and frequent care.  Watering your garden appropriately is perhaps the most important regular maintenance task.  Then, there is integrated pest management, plant support, harvest, replanting (for lengthened harvest times), and more.  We understand that your day-to-day routines and schedules can get hectic at times.   You may have the desire to provide yourself and/or your family with FRESH and homegrown fruit, vegetables, and herbs, but let’s face it, we don’t all have the time.  Imagine coming home to a basket of your own fresh herbs and veggies for cooking, right on your front porch!  We can also show you how to preserve them so waste is extremely minimal.

            Organic Vegetable or Herb Garden Care- AS NEEDED

This custom service is great if you are going out of town for a week and need a hand watering while you are gone!  No one likes to come home to fried tomatoes!  If you would like to schedule a few “as needed” visits at our hourly rate call our office to set up a time that is convenient for you.  We are your organic gardening experts.
