It's fall gardening season and our Vegetable and Herb Starter Plants are flying off the benches! Each open pollinated, organic seed is started with loving care in organic soil by the owners hands. We're about as low tech as you can get around here, so there are no potting machines, no crews, no growth regulators or hormones, just good dirt, good seed and a little bit of organic worm castings. All of our plants are priced lower than local chain stores. We have loads of seeds in stock, but our starter plants are limited. In our experience, it's much better to direct sow (start directly in your garden or pots) things like arugula, beans, beets, carrots, cucumbers, most lettuces, most Asian greens, radishes, squash and turnips- which is why you typically won't see these things on our starter plant list. Here's what we have entering this week:
Codes: VL= Very Limited, 5 or less in stock; L= Limited, 6-10 in stock; any plant without either of those codes means we have 10 or more plants or packs in stock.
