Bog Boy tomatoes
My family and I arrived in the United States 8 years ago as refugees from Sudan. When I was living in Sudan I worked as a farmer with my father and always enjoyed growing produce and selling at the markets. Last year I found a large unused plot of land in my neighborhood, near Drake Park and was able to talk with the landlord to start using it as a garden. I loved having a garden to work in again and spent many hours hauling water, weeding, tending and harvesting produce with the help of my family. This year I am growing in the same space again have started selling produce at various markets in the Des Moines area with the assistance of Lutheran Services in Iowa. My produce is truly locally grown with many of the seedlings started at my home and all the produce grown right in the heart of the city. With over 200 tomato plants, and corn, okra, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, watermelon and more I stay very, very busy. Taking care of my garden and sharing my produce with others brings me much joy and I hope that you love whatever you buy!

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
I strive to keep my garden as natural and chemical-free as possible. I have tested using a very small amount of products in various parts of my garden however, some plants are still completely chemical free. I will indicate this when I post items for sale.
