NEW BASIL


Pluto Greek Basil

Compact fine-leaved basil for small containers or mixed containers. Small leaves have an aromatic Greek basil flavor--sweet like Italian with slight anise flavor in the background. Great for Caprese salad or pesto. Grow in a pot and bring into the house in the fall for fresh basil year-round!

NEW MINT


Mojito Mint

Perennial
Everyone asks for this one and I’m finally going to be offering it! You can use any kind of spearmint to make a mojito, but this Cuban mojito mint is the authentic mint for making the famous drink. Pretty crinkled leaves on vigorous plants. Can be used for any other mint dish also. Perennial.

NEW OTHER COMMON HERBS


English Wedgewood Thyme

Perennial
The leaves of English thyme are slightly more broad than the narrow, pointy leaves of French thyme. This variety has dark green leaves with light green markings. The flavor is slightly sweeter and milder than French thyme and the plant grows taller. Cut back often to keep it full and bushy. Can't take super hot weather, so this is a good one to plant in partial shade.

NEW ADVENTUROUS HERB

Perennial
Golden sage has beautiful yellow and green variegated leaves and the same aroma and flavor as the grey-green leaves of regular sage. Use as you would for regular sage, in soups, meat, teas, etc. Eye appealing foliar display for your herb garden or flower bed.

NEW ADVENTUROUS HERB


Hot and Spicy Oregano

Perennial
This new oregano is similar to regular Greek oregano, but it has more heat and pungency. Like Greek oregano, only the fresh leaves are spicy, the dried ones losing the spiciness, but retaining that traditional oregano flavor essential to Mediterranean cooking. It's like getting two herbs in one plant! Pretty pink flowers on an easy to grow plant.

NEW ADVENTUROUS HERB


Patchouli

Annual
I'm excited to offer patchouli plants this year! This tropical member of the mint family is not hardy here, but can be grown in a large pot and brought indoors in winter. One of the few herbs that will do well in partial shade, patchouli has beautiful, dark green, tooth-edged leaves with an earthy, woody, or spicy scent that is familiar to most of us. Use it fresh or dried for a luxurious bath, in potpourri, or even in tea.

NEW HEIRLOOM SLICER


Pork Chop

Yellow Tomato Ind.75-85 days

While most “yellow” tomatoes are actually orange, this is a true yellow that starts off yellow with green stripes which ripen to gold. The medium sized, slightly flattened beefsteaks have sweet tomato flavor with hints of citrus. Wild Boar farmer Brad Gates says it is the “best yellow I have ever had.”
