Annie's Fave Veggies
Spring Collection #1

We’ve teamed up with our favorite local seed company, Oakland’s own Kitazawa Seed Co. (est. 1917) to offer you a selection of our most in-demand varieties to sow early for delicious Spring crops. All of the varieties in this collection can be sown January through March, and most can be sown over a longer season for multiple crops. Some are best to start in an indoor windowsill, while others prefer to be planted directly into your garden – each packet includes complete sowing instructions. NON-GMO, Safe Seed Pledge.

This collection includes:
Arugula ‘Astro’
Carrot ‘Scarlet Red’
Lettuce ‘Okayama Salad’
Radish ‘French Breakfast’
Sugar Pea ‘Oregon Sugar Pod II’

Most veggies will want to be in the sunniest spot in your yard, so choose a place where they will thrive. Prepare beds by turning over the soil and amending with a planting mix if it is too clay-ey, too rocky, or too sandy.  Creating well-draining soil will provide a root environment where your plants can establish a solid foundation for strong growth. Mix in a good amount of organic compost – most veggies grow fast, so they'll need extra nutrients to get started, and then will need to be fed regularly. While any 16-16-16 fertilizer works well, we recommend MaxSea All Purpose Plant Food. Water regularly. If you have sown seeds directly into the garden, water gently until they have germinated.
