Philip and some European cucumbers
In our greenhouse we grow tomatoes, Persian and European cucumbers, six colors of bell peppers, five flavors of basil, green beans and eggplant. We grow the bell peppers and basil and green beans hydroponically in Philip’s senior project from Cal Poly. He graduated from Cal Poly with a Crop Science degree, specializing in greenhouse vegetables. While we are not certified organic, all of our production is based on organic growing methods.

What do you like about farmers’ markets?
We really enjoy talking to people from out of town who visit the markets. It’s fun to hear how amazed they are that we do this all year. Some customers visit us 2-3 times a week at the various markets we attend. We appreciate getting to know our customers. Plus, it’s nice to see how some customers can be so friendly and argue with each other about sharing: ‘You should take the last German Stripe tomato.’ ‘No, no, you take it.’ Ha!
