It’s that time again! Join us at our annual Edible Plant Sale, April 22-23 and May 6-8! This year we’re having TWO sales, one in April for cooler-weather seedlings and another in May for warmer-weather seedlings.
Our vegetable and herb seedlings are locally-grown in certified organic soil and are hand-selected for growing well in Chicago. Heirloom favorites will be available, as well as a few disease- resistant tomato and basil varieties! For the first time ever, we’re offering open-pollinated dwarf tomato seedlings! We’ll also be selling our book, Fearless Food Gardening in Chicagoland, seeds from Seed Savers Exchange, Purple Cow Activated compost, Corona tools, Grewbie kits (everything you need to lay out your square foot gardening grid), Neptune’s Harvest liquid fertilizer, Jobe’s Organics Vegetable & Tomato granular fertilizer, PGP t-shirts, seed potatoes, and Seed Keeper Company 5- and 10- gallon Burlap Girdles (great for growing potatoes!). For the first time, we’re also adding items for extending the growing season, so you can get a head start in April! On April 22 get ready for the Purple Cow Soilmobile! We’ll be offering free, 15-20 minute classes on creating healthy garden soil. In May we’re adding our annual bake sale for delicious, locally-baked goods.
