Get your seedlings here!

My farmer doubles as my gardener! It’s true. Despite my good intentions to turn my garden, nourish it with fresh compost, and plant an early spring crop of lettuce, spinach and more, it’s rare that it actually happens. This year is no exception, except I’ve been partially saved by the late-planted spinach and kale I put in the ground last October that is miraculously thriving this spring. Nevertheless, in just a short time, my farmer will save the day once again. Yes, I’ll be loading up with organic seedlings at this year’s Urban Oaks Organic Farm Seedling Sale – the biggest organic seedling sale in Connecticut…if not further! You definitely don’t want to miss it!

While I was thinking about the sorry shape of my garden last week, I stopped by the farm to see how things were shaping up. These pictures tell the story better than I ever could.

    do you have wheat grass seedlings?

    Hi Cindy,

    Wheat grass doesn’t require seedlings. You can buy wheat berries in the bulk section of your natural food store and sprout them yourself in just over a week. All you need is a wire mesh straining basket, a bowl and a container to grow them in w/either soil or a base layer that retains water. There are also many kits available (probably also at your natural food store) or online.

    Good luck!

    Terry
