Marvin's Garden Produce

(Louosville,KY)

Marvin's Garden Produce grows seasonal vegetables and herbs for local markets in the Kentuckiana area. Since I am just getting started, I have decided to grow a wide variety of vegetable varieties in order to find out what works best for me, both on the growing side and the marketing side. So, along with Green Peppers and Red Tomatoes, I will also be growing Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Yellow Bean Pods. In the long term, I will strive to make my garden a closed loop, which means no outside products (with the exception of seeds). At present, I will not be using any synthetic fertilizers and I will not be using ANY herbicides or pesticides whether they are certified organic or not. I do use organic methods, but I will not pursue certification because it is costly for small farmers and I instead hope to develop long term relationships with customers that will come to my garden and see for their own eyes what they are eating - in my mind this is far more important. With all that said, the garden will also be a fun place for everybody that cares to visit, and I encourage visitors to come out whenever they can because the local food movement is also about community and developing personal connections. And I tend to be goofy and joke around a lot when I am not writing super serious stuff like what you just read.
