This farm truly is an urban oasis! Over an acre of lush organic veggies in the middle of Tampa! They offer CSA memberships, home growing systems and supplies for the home gardener, loads of fresh veggies, and more! They also operate Urban Lawns, an organic lawn spraying service - better for your yard, family, and environment. They are beginning to work with worm castings, worm tea, and compost in addition to their organic fertilizers. I have eaten their produce almost weekly for the past several months. I have been exposed to veggies the I had not ever tried, or even heard of! My family has enjoyed much more fresh produce in our meals than ever before. And the key word is fresh! While I support organic and cringe at the thought of GMO's, I am most impressed with the freshness of the crops. I swear that I have never tasted a cucumber so crisp and flavorful before. The eggplant, regular and Antigua, are so firm yet tender, and have an amazing taste - clean and bright, not bitter ever. Turnips, kohlrabi, swiss chard, kale, cucumbers, several types of zucchini and summer squash, green beans, tomatoes, okra, watermelon and cantaloupe, scallions, fragrant herbs, spinach, and glorious lettuce including a vibrant red leaf and delicate butterhead! I am a true fan of this gem right in my neighborhood!
