While most of us work away somewhere in cubicals or small offices usually without windows, Steve Mollenkof works every day tending to his garden under the blue sky and selling vegetables and herbs to passersby. After trying his fresh vegetables I quickly realized vegetables picked green and shipped hundreds of miles to your large commercial grocery don't compare to the vegetables picked ripe from the garden.

So get out in the sun, learn the art of cooking, use fresh herbs and support your local gardner!

Hello my name Steve Mollenkof.
My garden is located at 2575 Buford Dam Road Cumming Georgia, Forsyth County Georgia. My Garden is approximately two acres, primarily organic. I use a little Osmocote and a little calcium nitrate on tomatos but I dont use any pesticides or herbicides. I grow primarily tomatos, corn, okra, peppers, yellow squash, zuccini squash, beans, both bush and pole, herbs, orugula, lettuce, carrots, and cut flowers.
To my right, first growing would be bell pepper 'Big Bertha' followed by mixed zinnias for display, habanero peppers, zuccini 'Select' followed by white bunching onions 'Hardy White' which is hardy in this area during the winter. Next would be zuccini 'Select'. Cucumbers growing up the fence are called 'Marketmore', followed by lettuce called 'Lasting Green', followed by a carrot called 'Betania' which does well in this clay soil. Yellow squash would be 'Fortune', followed by 'Better Boy' tomatoes ,carrot 'Betania' again and Squash 'Fortune'. Interplanted with the squash 'Fortune' would be pole beans 'Blue Lake' and the yellow squash is 'Sunray' interplanted with 'Better Boy' tomotoes followed by 'Celebrity' tomatos, zuccini 'Spineless Beauty' ,yellow squash 'Sunray', 'Celebrity' tomatoes, zuccini 'Select', zinnia 'Benary's Giant' which is mildew resistant that I grow for cut flowers. There's a mixed zinnia border across the walkway which is mostly for display; some cut flowers, followed by lettuce called 'Lasting Green' and 'Cow Horn' peppers followed by bell peppers 'Big Bertha'.

Mientras la mayoría de nosotros trabaja en algún lugar, sentado en cubiculos o pequeñas oficinas, usualmente sin ventanas, Steve Mollenkof trabaja todos los días atendiendo su huerto y vendiendo vegetales y hierbas a los transeúntes. Despues de probar sus vegetales frescos, rápidamente me di cuenta de que los productos cosechados verdes y empacados desde cientos de millas a las grandes cadenas de supermercados, no se comparan con los vegetales cosechados maduros en el jardin.

Asi que sal al sol, aprende el arte de cocinar, usa vegetales frescos y apoya a tus agricultures locales!

Hola, mi nombre es Steve Mollenkof.

Mi huerto está localizado en 2575 Buford Dam Road, Cumming Forsyth County, Georgia. Es aproximadamente 2 acres, primordialmente orgánico; yo uso un poco de Osmocote y un poco de Nitrato de Calcio en los tomates, pero no uso ningún pesticida, ni herbicidas.

En mi huerto produzco primordialmente tomates, ocra, pimentones, zapallos, zuquini, frijoles, tanto en arbusto como en palo, hierbas, arugula, lechuga, zanahorias y flores. A mi derecha, primeramente tenemos pimentones “Big Bertha” en crecimiento, seguidos por claveles mixtos para exhibición, pimentones habaneros, zuquini “Select”, seguidos de cebollas “Hardy White”, las cuales son dificiles de producir en esta area durante el invierno. Próximo, tenemos zuquinis “Select”. Los pepinos que crecen sobre la cerca se llaman “Marketmore”, seguidos por un tipo de lechuga conocida como “Lasting Green”, luego zanahorias “Bethania”, a las cuales les queda muy bien este suelo arcilloso. El zapallo amarillo que tendremos es “Fortuna”, seguido de tomates “Better Boy”, zanahorias “Bethania” y nuevamente zapallo “Fortuna”. Sembrados conjuntamente con el zapallo “Fortuna”, tendremos los frijoles en palo “Blue Lake”; además, el zapallo amarillo “Sunray” conjuntamente con los tomates “Better Boy”, seguidos por los tomates “Celebrity”, zuqinis “Spineless Beauty”, zapallo amarillo “Sunray”, tomates “Celebrity, zuquini “Select”, claveles “Benary’s Giant”, los cuales son resistentes al mildiu y que produzco para cortar. Tengo un borde de claveles mixtos alrededor del camino, los cuales son mayormente para exhibicion; algunas flores para cortar, seguidas de lechugas “Lasting Green” y pimentones 'Corno Di Toro' seguido por los pimentones “Big Bertha”.
