Crop List

Here’s what I’m planing to grow this year at Rake and Radish Farm.

Don’t see your favourite vegetable on the list? It’s likely trickier to grow but let me know and I might be able to add it to the repertoire next season.


  • Arugula
  • Beans (bush and pole in many colours)
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Chard
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Mustard greens
  • Radishes
  • Salad Mix
  • Snap Peas
  • Tomatoes
  • Turnips
  • Pie Pumpkins
  • Winter squash (acorn, delicata, butternut, spaghetti)
  • Zucchini

This year I’m also trialing Brussels sprouts, watermelon and ground cherries. They likely won’t make an appearance in the boxes this season but if they do well, we all may be in for a treat!

The other maybe is potatoes if I can find a way to fit them into my very squishy crop plan, so stay tuned on that!


  • Cantaloupe (hopefully!)
  • Strawberries
  • Plums


  • Basil
  • Parsley


  • Asters
  • Cornflowers
  • Cosmos
  • Dahlias
  • Gomphrena
  • Marigolds
  • Scabiosa
  • Snapdragons
  • Statice
  • Strawflowers
  • Sunflowers
  • Yarrow
  • Zinnias

Farming is an ever challenging occupation and crop failure is an unfortunate reality. So while hopefully all of these crops will make an appearance in the CSA boxes and flower shares, there’s always the possibility that some varieties won’t make it.
