Open House on April 28 postponed

April 25, 2024

We are sorry to have to push our Open House off by 1 week. Due to Barb's unexpected 4 day hospital stay last weekend for testing ( All was ok) , unplanned dental surgery this Frday, rain and the risk of severe weather on Sunday, we cannot be ready for guests out here this weekend. We are so sorry. We hope to be open Thurs and Fri next week as planned and will post that here after the weekend.

 We had hoped to be open sooner but we are still digging and potting up herbs and mints. Despite the warmer than usual spring weather this year,the mints and comfrey  have been very slow in coming up. We will be in he middle of having a new shade house roof put on so please pardon the mess. We may attend a few Farmer's maarkets on Saturdays. If so, we'll be open on Sunday afternoons instead of Saturdays but all that will be posted the Market News page.

 

Barb Emge's passion for herbs began over 45 years ago when she planted a few seeds outside her kitchen door.  Today her collection includes all of the traditional culinary herbs, as well as many heirloom, ethnic and unusual varieties. She also has the largest variety of scented geraniums in Missouri.
