All About Middle Ridge Gardens

Middle Ridge Gardens was established in 1990 by Tom and Sue Woodworth.  The adventures have been abundant along our 18 year trek so we thought we would give you an overview of who we are…

Construction at Middle Ridge Gardens, Madison, Ohio

Laying the foundation for our greenhouse.

1990

In the summer of 1990 we built the barn.  On Thanksgiving Day; a cold, wet, miserable day, we started construction of the main greenhouse with the help of family and friends.  The last of the plastic roofs were snapped in place on New Year’s Day and we were ready for our first season… Well, almost ready.

1991

Our first season was a tough one.  We had mud floors in the greenhouse- this made it tough to use the carts, no electricity and no automated watering.  We found out that we had a salt-water problem after we lost most of the crop.   We also had some people issues- we had no bathroom in the barn so bathroom trips became sort-of lengthy when you had to drive a couple of miles to the house to use the facilities.  To help sell our product, we utilized Outdoor Markets.  We had a 1954 truck that we called “Big Red.”  So we would load up the plants and head to market on Saturday (Coit Road in Cleveland) and Sunday (Aurora Farms).  <read more>
