Pumpkin Patch Fun, Cool-Season Vegetables, and All Things Fall Gardening

If you have yet to visit our Pumpkin Patch, now’s the time to don the costumes, round up family and friends, and bring the camera! We have more than eight pumpkin varieties to select from. Some are better for recipes, some for carving! All are great for decorating, and getting in the spirit of fall.

Decorating for Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving


(Above and below) Our indoor design team is always crafting fun and eclectic displays to inspire your creativity.


(Above and below) How “Talavera” are you?! The colorful, unique ceramic pumpkins above and the “Day of the Dead” skulls below are hand-painted Talavera Pottery finds from Mexico.


The story behind Talavera Pottery is that Spanish guild artisans of the Colonial period introduced the art of “Talavera” to Mexico, and Mexican artisans then added their own artistic flair to create “Talavera” Pottery.

Mexican Talavera draws its name from the 16th century Spanish pottery center, Talavera de la Reina, and while the intricate polychrome and more typical blue and white designs demonstrate the pottery’s Old World legacy, native floral and animal motifs make these colorful ceramics classically Mexican.

Cool-Season Vegetables Are Here!


Our cooler weather means it’s time to plant your cool-season vegetables, such as Pak Choi, aka Chinese Cabbage (above), and Swiss Chard (below). You’ll find a variety of cabbages, chards, kales, eggplants and more at the garden center.


(Below) Ever heard of Cheddar Cauliflower?! Well, we have it, and other cauliflower choices. We also have Broccoli, Tomatoes (yes, you can grow them now), Bell Peppers and Peppers, including Fresno Pepper.


(Below) Different varieties of Tomatoes sit adjacent a display of our much-loved redwood raised vegetable beds, which are available in two sizes. Ask one of our garden design experts Steve or CJ for assistance.


(Below) While we don’t know how Berggarten Sage would taste in beer, it does lend incredible flavor to stuffings, bean dishes and jellies, and lamb and pork. It also combines well with Mediterranean herbs such as thyme, savory, rosemary and mint, which you can find at the garden center.


(Below) Microgreens are another cool-season bounty you’ll want to have in your edible garden this fall and winter. We stock all the lettuce varieties you’ll want to grow so stop in to see our large selection.
