More new edibles are here! There's still time to get planting your summer edibles garden! If your favorites are still not yet available, add them to your wish list and we’ll email you as soon as they’re ready. If you’re local, we have many more varieties in our retail nursery, including some great melons, and unusual tomato varieties that will grow in containers, or don’t mind the coastal coolness, are great for sauces and simply taste great.
SUMMER 2022 CATALOG GROWING UPDATE
To help keep you informed about the growing status of our summer crops, we’ve prepared a weekly Growing Status update for catalog plants as a pdf. If something isn’t available online now but is listed in the “Be Right Back” section (of our Catalog Growing Status update PDF) that means we have more successive crops growing and it will be available again real soon. Add these plants to your wish list and we’ll send you an email as soon as they’re back.
