"Second Spring" Plant and Seedling Sale!
We call this time of year, "Second Spring" because it seems like we are repeating a lot of the growing and planting tasks that we were doing in March and April. The plan is to plant the seeds or transplants of cold-loving vegetables and greens now so we can continue harvesting great healthy vegetables into the fall. It is the perfect time to replant the seeds of beets, radishes, cilantro, dill, peas, turnips, mustards, lettuces, greens mixes, spinach, and arugula directly into the ground in your garden. I plan on planting some of these things every other week or so right through the end of August.
Other vegetables need a head start - so we planted trays and trays of broccolis, cauliflowers, collards, kales, chards, lettuces, Asian greens, endives, chicories, and escaroles right around the 4th of July indoors. I've been hardening them off and transplanting them to pots these past couple weeks. And they can go into the ground anytime during mid August.
We'll be selling our "Second Spring" seedlings at our Upcoming "Second Spring" Plant Sale!
