It is almost August and the summer is literally flying by! Here are some sights from our store The Antique Garden in the square of Leitersburg Maryland. Located in an 1895 General Store, our selves are filled with the bounty of the season, plus pots, containers, collectibles and great plants. Take a visual tour of the store, the outbuildings and our newest feathered friends. We specialize in garden design and installation plus a whole lot more….
Meet our flock of silkies, bantams, wyndottes and red chicks!
We are located at 21501 Leitersburg-Smithsburg Rd., Hagerstown, Maryland. Open Monday through Saturday 10-4 and Sundays by appointment or chance.
The Antique Garden Homegrown originated several years ago after we started vegetable gardening. John dug up the back lawn and created raised beds in attractive rows across the yard. We planted crops of peppers, tomatoes, beans, asparagus, raspberries, zucchini, lettuces, Swiss chard, beets, sweet potatoes, onions, herbs, potatoes and more.
We had a bumper crop of almost everything and we never had to spray for insects; something we liked a lot. I began preserving our bounty by freezing and canning, using old-fashioned, time-tested recipes, using the very safe water-bath method and new, American made, Ball canning jars.
Now we bring you the goodness of real food; prepared with garden fresh, pesticide-free vegetables. You will taste the difference of homegrown, small batch prepared food, using only our vegetables or those from local farms. We think you will love it! Our farmstand is open seasonally through December.

We have been busy going on fantastic buying trips around the area. While our General Store is closed for the winter months, it is a great time for us to go to trade shows, wholesalers, and the antique malls. Here are some of my new-found treasures that I will be adding to daily on several internet sites including The Antique Garden & Home.
Some of my items go straight to eBay and if they are in demand, sell within 7 days. My aesthetic is primitive country to kitchen collectibles, pottery, china with some better clothing and vintage items. So check out our finds, you never know what you’ll discover.
Most of my items can be found on my web store at www.RubyPlaza.com just search for The Antique Garden or click my link on the right side of my blog. I can also send you an invoice directly from paypal if you send me your email address and cut out the middle man. First orders of $50.00 or more receive $5.00 off the next order.
Hadley is my FAVORITE American made pottery. Created in Kentucky, I collect the Country Pattern, but also have some of the Ski pieces.
