Our Gardens
For foo
d, rest and play, our gardens are rooted in history and will add color to your day. 

Vegetable & Herb Gardens
The plants grown in our vegetable and herb gardens supply our educational programming. 

  • As much as possible, we sow heirloom seeds
    • Heirloom seeds are seeds that are open-pollinated and developed before the 1940’s, passed down from one generation to the next
    • Heirloom vegetables are not always perfect looking but the plants are reliable, adaptable and give us valuable clues to how our ancestors ate
    • Heirlooms are generally more resistant to adverse growing conditions and are more likely to thrive on their own without chemical fertilization, irrigation or pesticides
    • Each year we try new varieties of vegetables to see what might work best for our growing conditions or to support a particular educational focus
    • To help educate visitors about country doctor history, we also grow a Medicinal Herb Garden—see the Herbals ~ Herbs, Medicine & Wid Plants page for related workshops and programming

  • We are located in Hardiness Zone 4b: The average first frost is between September 1–10, while the average last frost occurs between June 1–10. [The average high temperature in Summer is 78°F, while the average high temperature in Winter is 29°F.
