This weekend is going to be sunny and warm, it’s perfect timing for getting your veggie plants in the ground. You can pick up an amazing variety of plants, including over 50 kinds of tomatoes and 20 peppers at the Seattle Tilth’s Summer Garden Edible Plant Sale going on this Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5, from 9:00 am to 3:00 p.m. Not only will you get great plants, you’ll be supporting a non-profit community organization.
Can’t make it to the sale this weekend? Consider ordering your plants from a CSA-type model, such as Cascadia Edible Landscapes. Their summer sign-up is open now until May 27.
