How We Grow...
It is not only important to know the story of where your garden friends come from, but also HOW they are grown! Edible Antiques owner and operator Stacey Hubbs (hi!) grows, maintains, harvests, processes and packages these seeds at the Edible Antiques homebase gardens in Picton, Ontario. The homebase gardens are several small gardens spaced out over one acre around my home. These tiny gardens are kept sustainably, constantly working to feed the soil which feeds the plants. These gardens are dug by hand, weeded by hand, watered by mother nature, rain barrel catchings, and our well. Growing conditions at the Edible Antiques homebase gardens are pretty sandy, and fairly shaded. I am always working to add organic matter to the soil. Soil amendments consist of garden and kitchen compost, a lot of eggshells (we usually have a few chickens/ducks) composted sheep manure, composted chicken/duck manure, leaves, straw and tree mulch, and legume plantings for nitrogen fixation. Organic sea based compost and sea based foliar feedings for an added boost when needed. I keep things pretty basic!
