Greenhouse filled with seedlings for sale
Our annual seedling sale is coming up next Saturday, May 24 from 9 am-12 noon. We've been growing seedlings since early February and the greenhouse is filled to bursting right now. There's still some transplanting to do this week, to get more herbs and flowers ready, and we are expecting a great crowd! This is becoming a regular neighbourhood event, and we decided to add in some extra advertizing this year on our website and in the local paper just to spread to word a little further.
This is the 6th year we are holding the sale, and this year we are also offering a free bio-intensive gardening workshop (how to grow more vegetables in small space), led by our good friend Angie Koch of the Fertile Ground CSA. We hope also to have fresh baking, bread, and treats...
As many people have been asking for a list, here are some of the seedlings that we'll have:
- Bonnie Best, Yellow Pear, Green Zebra, Cherokee Purple, Patio, Mennonite Orange, Yukon Red, Early Girl, Sweet Baby Girl, Moneymaker, and more...
- Thai, Green Pesto, Purple Opal
- parsley, fennel, dill, cilantro, oregano, sage, rosemary, thyme, savory
Kale, Broccoli, Cucumber, Squashes, Zucchini, Melons, Pie Pumpkin, Green Onions
and some annual flowers...
