THE SUN IS OUT. I REPEAT, THE SUN IS OUT. WE CAN PLANT NOW.
Plant starts are not our usual modus operandi, but we have some extras from our starts this year, and I’d love to share them with you! For a modest fee. (4 PLANTS FOR 5 BUCKS *cough*) Here’s what I’ve got:
“Tough Guy” Kale: Did you know kale can overwinter? Even a North Idaho winter? In fact, winter is when kale is the sweetest and most flavorful. Snake River Seed Co-op started a community plant-breeding project where over a dozen area farmers and gardeners saved seeds from kale that overwintered for them. These kale starts were grown from that seed! SHAZAM.
Cherry Tomato Runts: In North Idaho, the tomato growing window is short and rather chilly. Cherry tomatoes are the solution. Tomato germination makes me nervous, so I started too many…having already planted all the big guys, I’m now offering you, the consumer, the runts for cheap! Selling two varieties: SunGold (Orange), and Supersweet 100 (Red).
