Could there be anything better than picking a warm, sweet tomato in passing whilst meandering through the garden? Irrespective of skill level, all gardeners reap harvests, as nature is both forgiving and generous. One finds that even with just a few tomato plants one can have more tomatoes than one could possibly eat. But what better present to share with family and friends than one’s own home-grown produce?
Why Grow Your Own?
We are all familiar with the current modern-day challenges facing us when trying to lead a healthy lifestyle and purchase fresh produce:
- Pesticide Contamination
- Genetically Modified Organisms
- Foodborne Infections
- Lack of Flavor and Aroma
- Produce being Unripe
- High Expense of Organic Produce
The only way to truly know what you are eating is to grow it yourself. For this very reason we start almost all our vegetable plants ourselves. This way we are 100% certain that no synthetic pesticides or hormones are ever used on our plants.
The one reason we have not mentioned, and yet perhaps the most important for many of you, is the sheer joy one receives from growing one’s own vegetables. It is extremely rewarding and fulfilling, as with all forms of gardening, regardless of what level it is practiced at. Some are content with a mere tomato plant on their patio, whilst others enjoy a full-blown spring, summer and autumn crop schedule! Whatever level best suits you, we are here to help you be successful in your endeavors. And don’t forget, vegetable gardening is a great way to teach children and get them outdoors; be sure to involve them in the whole process from start to finish.
Better Quality Plants
At Pesche’s we believe in providing our customers with not only aesthetic plants, but also plants that are strong, healthy and resilient. Why? Because we know that ultimately this is the key factor to the success of any gardener. For this reason, Chris Pesche uses the same growing methods as did his father and grandfather before him; namely to grow plants cool and slow, thereby ensuring that plants are strong and robust. Too many growers try to cut corners and grow plants warm and fast, resulting in tall and spindly plants that are prone to breakage, cold damage and pest occurrence.
