Patty has helped me go from a brown-thumb plant murderer to a green thumbed container gardener with a flair!
Just wanted to let you know what a great time my friend Jan and I had at your shop on Saturday afternoon! Our detour leading us by your shop was just the "cherry on top" of our trip to the Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, MN. I would sure love to do what you are doing as I love gardening and gardening decor.
Good luck and best wishes for a successful business! I'll be visiting your website.

I visited Patty's plants yesterday and brought home some beautiful ferns and bleeding hearts. Patty was also able to help me with a big problem: those obnoxious beetles that have returned. It was nice to find an organic solution so we can keep the well from being contaminated...thanks Patty !

I truly enjoyed visiting your shop, not once, but twice in 2 days. I purchased 2 rosemary plants and their aroma is heavenly to me.
I have also enjoyed reading your well-organized website along with your newsletters. I made basil pesto using your recipe today. Thank you so much for that! I have a recipe of my own to share. I did a lot of canning this past week and had some quite small roma tomatoes that seemed not worth the bother to skin and can. Well, I don't throw anything away if I don't have to so I had to think what to do with them since they were small.
I made slow-roasted tomatoes with them. I set the oven at it's lowest setting, that would be 200 degrees.I halved each tomato and placed them on a lined cookie sheet. Then I sprinkled them with italian seasoning, oregano, thyme, or whatever I had handy, a bit of sea salt and black pepper, and some minced garlic, and then topped it all with a sprinkle of olive oil. I roasted them for about 6 hours, some even longer, depending on size. I then placed them in a ziploc bags along with any olive oil from the pan and placed them in my freezer. I will be making a delicious oven-dried tomato and goat cheese tart this winter for sure. Now if only I still had my goats. LOL
Have a great day, Patty, and thank you for opening your shop to me.
This is a little overdue, but I have to tell you how much I like the herb mixes I bought from you 3 weeks ago. The butter spread was sooo good! Both dip mixes are delicious, too. I only used 2 T. instead of 3 of the Fiesta mix & it was still a little spicy, but yummy.
Take care, Kelly B of Milton, WI
Patty's Plants is the BEST!!!! I have had the best "crop" of veggies this year, mostly because of Patty's vast knowledge and great products. Thank you Patty!!!
