Hungarian Wax Pepper Issue – 2017

Hungarian Wax Peppers To all of our loyal customers, we apologize for this unfortunate mix up with Hungarian wax peppers.  It appears as though our supplier packaged the wrong seeds.  We are not alone, this issue has impacted growers in the tri-state area.  We do not have any “real” Hungarian wax peppers left but would be happy to replace your mystery peppers with green peppers this year.  Please see the image of the letter from the seed... read more

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.


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.


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>
