Garden Shopping Spree

The Southside Community Land Trust plant sale was this weekend.  Knowing how well the plants did last year (some have even happily returned after their winter sleep), I went even crazier this time and loaded up a couple of flats.  Here’s what we found.

Herbs:
Dill
Parsley (Giant, flat leaved)
Borage
Epazote
Marjoram
Sage
Thai Basil

Fruits:
Yellow Alpine Strawberry
Raspberry
Ground Cherry

Misc Veg:
Mexican Sour Gherkin
Purple Tomatillo
Tomatillo
Golden Chard
Ping Tung Eggplant
Red Spinach
Champion Collard

Tomatoes:
Green Zebra Tomato
Cherry Roma
Sun Gold
Red Pear

Peppers:
Lemon Drop Pepper
Serrano Chile
Black Czech Pepper
Volcano Hot Pepper
Bulgarian Pepper
Hungarian Hot Wax Pepper

Here’s how the garden looked in March, April and May. I’ve only planted a few of my new purchases so far – it’s such a cold, grey day and I’m having a hard time leaving the house.

  1. Holy moly…I just discovered your blog and it is amazing! I’m a transplant to PVD and am very slowly coming around to it. We have many loves in common, food, knitting, beer, etc.

    Looking forward to diving into your archives!
