Thyme For Ewe Farm's Gardens



We offer a large variety of vegetables from May into November in our 1.5 acre garden. We practice sustainable farming methods. The fertilizers we use are produced here on the farm.  We compost old hay, bedding from the cow and goats, manure and plants from the garden.  We also use compost tea.

When insect pests get out of hand we turn to natural methods of control.  We can turn the ducks loose into the mature garden to eat slugs after a rain.  The chickens will chase down grasshoppers, scratch up grubs and disturb weeds from dawn til dusk if we leave them out.

It is our belief that healthy soil grows healthy vegetables.  A healthy plant can tolerate being nibbled on by a pest.  When something more than the birds are necessary we turn to organic treatments.

Hoop House in Early May The new hoop house over part of the smallest garden.  This was taken in mid May.  There are peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, basil and lettuce planted in here. 

The hoop is 14' x 40'.  I like growing in the hoop so much that we'll be putting up a larger one soon.
