Keep an eye on my blog - we may be advancing our first Farmer Market appearance by at least a week, but it all depends upon how rapidly the seedlings grow post-transplant.....which will depend upon temperatures (especially night-time temps). Even if we hold off on the market until early April, for those anxious...I mean, enthusiastic...gardeners who don't mind small seedlings, we may invite people out to our driveway to do some early bird purchasing. Not yet, of course...but perhaps soon. Even if the tomatoes, peppers and eggplant are still small, I may pot up some lettuce (there are some really pretty types sizing up nicely) and various greens.
As far as mail order, the seedlings won't be ready until they get to a safe size for shipping - that will certainly not be until mid-April - and I've yet to work out payment methods and purchase shipping supplies - or determine which varieties are available for shipping. Lots to be worked out yet.
I will post some pics later, but right now, I am off to the garage to commune with seedlings and MetroMix!
I made it to the end of the "L" tomatoes. Tomorrow, on to the end of the alphabet! Some pictures...
