Our local farmer’s market opened last weekend!!
Very exciting to see familiar faces and the beginnings of vegetables now available in season and locally grown. Each farmer has something unique to offer.
One, Katie Bishop of PrairiEarth Farms – took orders this year for seed starts. I ordered tomatoes, cabbage, basil, kale, nasturtiums, and two kinds of peppers. Instead of using plastic containers she used soil blocks. The starts were wonderfully rooted and ready to plant. Nothing to add to recycling. I loved being able to order what ever I wanted and that my starts were purchased from Katie’s recommended quality seed sources too! I just picked the starts up took them home and planted them!
Below is an Amish Paste Roma Tomato start.
