In the Garden
We have several different areas where we grow fruits and vegetables. Our fruit trees and shrubs include: crabapples, saskatoons, raspberries, currants, gooseberries and chokecherries. Many of these are native shrubs growing on uncultivated land. Others were planted by our grandparents when they started farming and we are continually expanding their love of fresh produce by planting a few more each year.
Our perennial garden includes asparagus, strawberries, raspberries, saskatoons, gooseberries, sorrel, and rhubarb.

A garden wouldn’t be complete without flowers, so we’ve left the native flowers like yarrow, fleabane, wild bergamot and planted other pollinator-friendly flowers like Phacelia, clovers, borage, marigolds, zinnias, cosmos, calendulas and daisies.
