Asparagus Is More Than Just Asparagus To Me
Asparagus brings back memories of my dad.
If you are new to Glory Garden, you may not know that my dad died suddenly 3 years ago this spring at the age of 46. Just a few days after he died, I was out in the garden when I noticed that the first shoots of asparagus were poking their heads through the ground. I instantly remembered that he was a big fan of asparagus and in the same second realized that he was not here to relish this sign of spring with us.
My dad was an entrepreneur and ran several businesses over the years. I suppose that's why when I graduated high school in 2014, I knew I wanted to "do my own thing". I started Glory Garden that same spring.
My goal is to make it easy and convenient for families with busy lifestyles to get locally-grown, farm-fresh food.
After spending another winter learning, planning, and dreaming, I can't believe it's already time to open for our 5th season!
