Starting a Grocery Garden
Happy May Day! We are celebrating the return of spring!

We are humbled and grateful for the support from our wonderful community! Thank you to the many customers who have used our curbside pickup for their seeds, soil, herbs and more. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented spring!

We are thrilled at the amount of people that are growing their own gardens this year, especially veggie gardens.

Edible Gardening
Join this growing trend of eating locally – right from your very own garden. We all know the benefits of eating healthy and by growing your own vegetables you know all about your food since you grew it yourself.

Once the foundation of your garden is in place (good soil preparation), and your garden is planted, it takes just minutes a day to check the moisture level, pull a few weeds and to keep a watchful eye for bugs.

Square Foot Gardening
This gardening method is a great way to harvest the most vegetables within a small space. It is wonderful to incorporate in a small yard, school or community garden.

Best Veggies for Containers
You don’t need a lot of land to grow vegetables. Many varieties will be quite happy to grow in containers. 
A collection of herbs and veggies make a wonderful gift…
